Common Practice on Graphic Representation of Designs (CP6)

The Costa Rican IP Office 'Registro Nacional' found common ground with the criteria developed under the Common Communication on the Common Practice – Graphic Representation of Designs (CP6).

The practice paper provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice of the IP Office of Costa Rica and the IP Offices of the European Union Intellectual Property Network is based, particularly on how to use appropriate disclaimers, types of views and how to represent designs on a neutral background. It serves as a reference to users and examiners of the IP Offices involved.

The practice paper is available in Spanish and English and divided into two parts: the first summarises the criteria, while the second provides a full explanation of the different criteria applicable in each case.
