What are the advantage of obtaining a Registered Community Design?

A Registered Community Design gives a single legal system applied to Community designs, providing strong and uniform protection throughout the European Union.

It gives simplified formalities because of:

a single application

a single language of filing

a single administrative centre

a single file to be managed

a single payment

the possibility to file multiple applications (i.e. to include several designs in one application, such as a whole range of similar products)

the possibility to keep the design undisclosed for up to 30 months to avoid competitors learning of it.

It confers on its holder the exclusive right to use it and prevent any third party not having his consent from using it.
