We are currently seeking your input on proposed options for improving the Australian designs system, to implement accepted recommendations from ACIP’s review of the designs system. The consultation covers three topics:

  1. the scope of design protection;
  2. increased flexibility for designers; and
  3. simplifying and clarifying the designs system.

Submissions close 20 December 2019. Find out more information on our consultation page.
