IP Australia has published a new instrument in the Official Journal of Designs in relation to:
- the means and form of filing evidence and opposition documents:
This instrument commences immediately after the commencement of the Designs (Documents and Evidence) (Proceedings) Instrument 2019 made on 15 January 2019. The new instrument also repeals the aforementioned instrument made on 15 January 2019.
The updated instrument includes a new section 8, which specifies the form for filing evidence given in writing.
This instrument will commence at the same time as the corresponding parts in the IP Amendment Act, which will be on 24 February 2019, unless proclaimed to commence earlier.
