Renewing and amending your design
Your design registration lasts for five years from the filing date of your application. You may choose to renew your design registration for a further five years. If you do not renew your registration, your design will cease.
Protecting your design
It is important to protect your design to gain the most benefit from your intellectual property (IP) asset.
Understanding the legislation
If your registered design is infringed, or you believe it is being infringed, you should consider requesting an examination immediately. You may also wish to seek legal advice.
