How to protect your design internationally

You may want to register your design outside of the Czech Republic, to obtain protection in the whole of the European Union (EU), as well as in other countries outside the EU or even beyond. The Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs provides a centralized registration system where you can e-file up to 100 designs and target over 55 territories in one single application that you could use to claim priority in further filings.

Any individual or business in the Czech Republic can file an international application under the Hague System. For more information on Filing an International Application, geographical coverage and fees, and to get started, please go to
