Community Design Registration (EUIPO)

Community Design Registration; is a registration system, covers 27 member states of European Union. Community design registration processes are executing by the Office Of Harmonization in the Internal Market (EUIPO).

EUIPO does not examine compatibility of the applications only for the formal requirements, does not survey whether the design goods are original and distinctive or not, and publish the appropriate designs, in terms of the application criteria, directly on the Community Design Gazette for the oppositions of the third parties.

This publication could be delayed until the 30th month from the application date. Multi designs at the same category (class) could be ask for the protection with making application in one claim.

The most significant feature of the Community Design registration is the double protection system for the registered and non-registered industrial designs.

Accordingly;

– Registered industrial designs would have the provided rights from the application date, depending to the official publication,

– Non-registered industrial designs, could bar a claim for a span of three years after the statement. Namely, the protection period of the new and distinctive non-registered designs is 3 years from the presentation date in the Community.

– Registered Designs are protected for 25 years providing every 5 years renewals. ( After this date it will belong to public)

Member states of the Community: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Netherlands, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Portuguese, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Greece.
