Up to a Dozen Representations now Permitted for UK Registered Designs

The UK Intellectual Property Office had previously limited the number of views, or representations, which can be filed as part of a UK registered design application, to seven. Many applicants found this limitation on the number of design views to be difficult to adequately show the features of their designs.

However, good news has come from the UK Intellectual Property Office, who have realised this issue and have now changed the number of views that can be filed with a single UK registered design application to twelve. This should hopefully make it easier for applicants to adequately show all the features of their designs.

If you have any questions regarding this, wish to file one or more UK registered design applications, or any other IP issues, please do not hesitate to contact one of our advisers, either by email at mail@bailey-walsh.com, or by telephone on 0113 2089962.
