Process for Design Applications Improved


The Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) will use a new internal system starting September 3, 2015 for the processing of design applications. This new system will speed up the registration proceedings.

Important modifications are:
- Registration certificates for designs will no longer be sent. A copy of the registered design can be printed out through the online register. This copy will have the same legal status as a copy issued by BOIP.
- The Benelux Designs Register has been the official publication medium for drawings and designs since July 2015. From September drawings or designs will be published daily in the register.
