Design registration

The object of the industrial design can be a shape, configuration, or coloration, or their combination, which define the appearance of an industrial product. Consider, Russian Federation is not a member of Hague Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Industrial Designs.
In Russia novelty and originality shall be meet for granting design patent. In other words, design should not be known before filling date, and essential features must be the result of author's creative activity. There is substantive examination for novelty.
The applicant may be a legal entity or individual. Standard term of patenting is about 1 year. Convention priority can be set within 6 months from the date of filing the international application.

The following documents and information are required for filing design application:
  • name and address of author;
