Registered design protection

Introduction to registered design protection

Registered Design protection is granted on the basis of purely visual representations of the design in question. To be registered, a design must be new, have individual character and be visible to the eye during normal use of the design

A twelve month grace period is available which allows a design to be publicly disclosed prior to filing an application for the Registered Design. We recommend that an application is filed at the earliest opportunity to ensure that a third party does not obtain an earlier filing date for the same or similar design.

If you would like to discuss the suitability of your design or file an application to register your design then contact our expert team today.
