What is a Registered Design

A Registered Design is a legal right which protects the overall visual appearance and features of a 2D and 3D product or a part of a product in the country or countries you register it.

  • A three-dimensional product such as an industrial or handicraft item.

  • A two-dimensional ornamentation e.g. a pattern intended for display upon a product or a stylised logo.

The term product can also refer to packaging, graphic symbols, typographic typefaces and parts assembled into a more complex products.

How long do they last

A Registered Design remains in force for 25 years just as long as it’s renewed every 5 years.
