Design Procedure

  • Find out if the design has been registered before or not. The Design Office can assist you with the search.
  • A precise representation of the design should be prepared on white A4 size paper of robust quality.
  • A design must be categorized in a particular class in order to register systematically. An internationally accepted classification of Industrial Designs based on the function of the item is required on the application.
  • The applicant must provide a statement of novelty as per the Act in order to make claim. This will expedite the application process and provide more specific protection.
  • If the applicant has applied for protection of the design in convention countries, then they can register the design by citing a priority date in India. This is the date on which the application was filed in any convention countries. However, the application should be filed in India within six months.
