Registered Designs Searching


The Designs Novelty Search involves the searching of classified designs Form B and Representations. The search includes all designs registered from 1906 through to the present. The search does not include applications not yet registered as these are not published until registration.


The Designs Infringement Search includes registered designs that are currently in force (i.e. those with applications filed over the past 16 years that are registered and have been renewed as renewal falls due).


Proprietor Searching includes registered owners of designs, applicants for design registrations, and assignments. Normally the search covers a period of 16 years, but longer or shorter periods may be searched as instructed.
