Registered Community design

"Design” means the appearance of the whole or a part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colours, shape, texture and/or materials of the product itself and/or its ornamentation.

One single application for Community Design (RCD) at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) can include several designs, if all designs belong to one class of the International Classification for Industrial Designs (Locarno classification) and all designs have the same applicant.

Registration of Community Design takes several days and the design is valid until any third party objects it. Registration certificate is available in electronic form; it is not issued in paper. RCD allows for combating infringers immediately, for example, to seizure pirated goods at the customs border of the EU.
