The table shows that about 1.6 percent fewer deposits were registered in the first five months of 1998 than in the first five months of 1997.  Although this was some 3 percent less than expected for 1998, the lower number of registrations was more than compensated by the higher than expected number of renewals (with an increase of 18.2 percent).

Automation of the Hague System

Main Activities and Results

Integrated the bibliographical data contained in the international deposits of industrial designs on the computer platform developed for the management, registration and publication of marks under the Madrid Agreement and Protocol System (MAPS), so that from June 1, 1998, MAPS can progressively replace the interim computer system developed for the International Industrial Design Registry.

For the CDROM of reproductions contained in international deposits of industrial designs and of the associated bibliographic data, completed the tendering of the development of the required computer system and awarded a contract to a software company to build it for operation by the end of 1998.
