Industrial Design Registration

Protect the design of your products or their parts – lines, outlines, shape, structure, material.

With an industrial design, you can prevent competitors from using the product design or protected parts of the product without your permission for up to 25 years.


  • We’ll prepare the industrial design application and handle the related paperwork.
  • We take care of each design for 5 years – and even longer in case of renewal.
  • We’ll timely alert you about relevant deadlines and represent you in dealings with authorities and competitors.
  • We can also assist you in licensing or enforcing your rights.
  • All in line with your business plans. Strategically oriented towards business.

Registering an industrial design does not guarantee that you are not infringing on the rights of competitors. Before entering the market, we recommend conducting a design search to ensure non-infringement.

What are the conditions for protecting a design?

You can only protect designs that are new and have not been disclosed anywhere for more than 12 months.

Compliance with this condition is monitored differently in each country; for example, in the USA, they also check published videos on YouTube. Your design must not be too similar to other published designs. The best way to verify compliance with these conditions is through a design search.
