Frequently Asked Questions
What is design registration?
Design registration is a legal process that grants exclusive rights to the creator of a new and original design. It provides protection against unauthorized copying or imitation of the visual appearance of a product. Design registration focuses solely on the aesthetic aspects of a product and is not concerned with its functionality.
What are the design types?
There are several types of design, including ornamental designs (decorative or artistic in nature), product designs (the unique visual appearance or shape of a product), packaging designs (the visual design or appearance of product packaging), graphic designs (related to graphical elements), and user interface designs (the visual layout or graphical user interface (UI) elements of software), etc.
How much does it cost?
The expenses associated with Design registration fluctuate based on the specific country and the scope of services required. Usually an offer for design registration is based on the state filing fee, individual design or a group design, variants of design, priority claim, and registration fee. Our exceptional service ensures utmost transparency, offering you a competitive and predetermined fee for each application within every country.
Should I seek patent protection for my design?
If you possess a unique design that you fear might be replicated or counterfeited, it is advisable to pursue a design patent application. By filing for a design patent, you secure a 15-year period of exclusive rights to utilize the design starting from the date of filing. This protection safeguards your design from unauthorized use or imitation by others.
What are the main design registration stages?
There are 4 main stages – Filing the application, Submission of the application to the Patent Office, Registration of the design, and Maintenance (the term of design is 10-25 years depending on the country).
What is the Hague procedure?
The Hague System for the International Registration of Industrial Designs provides a practical business solution for registering up to 100 designs in 96 countries, by filing a single international application. In the same way as with trademarks, you can file applications in other countries within 6 months. The only difference is that you can still register trademarks after this period has expired, but it is no longer possible to register designs in other countries after 6 months have passed.
How to apply for priority?
If you apply for priority (according to the earlier application filed in the country-party to the Paris Convention or the exhibition priority), you are required to submit the certified copies of priority application with translation into the language of the patent office. Priority can be claimed within 6 months from the date of filing of the first application or publication at the international exhibition.

Design Patent in Singapore


Designs play a crucial role in the world of intellectual property, and Singapore is no exception. In fact, the country has seen a significant increase in the number of design registrations in recent years. According to the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS), there were over 5,000 design applications filed in 2020 alone. This shows the growing importance of designs in Singapore and the need for businesses to protect their designs through registration.

What Makes Singapore's Designs Unique?

The answer lies in the country's strong emphasis on innovation and creativity. With a thriving design industry and a supportive government, Singaporean designers are constantly pushing boundaries and coming up with unique and cutting-edge designs. By registering these designs, businesses can reap numerous benefits.

Firstly, registration provides legal protection for your designs, preventing others from copying or using them without permission. This gives businesses a competitive advantage and ensures that their designs remain exclusive. Additionally, registered designs can be used as evidence in legal disputes, making it easier to enforce your rights as a designer.

Moreover, registered designs can also serve as valuable assets for businesses. They can be licensed or sold to generate income and contribute to a company's overall value. In fact, IPOS reported that over 60% of design applications in Singapore were from foreign entities, indicating the attractiveness of Singapore's design market.

To register a design in Singapore, it must meet certain requirements such as being new and having an individual character. The registration process is relatively straightforward and can be done online through IPOS' e-filing system. The cost of registration is also reasonable, making it accessible for businesses of all sizes.
