Design registration in Ukraine

The object of the industrial design can be a shape, picture, or coloration, or their combination, which define the appearance of an industrial product. Consider that in Ukraine patent on the industrial design can not be granted on the part of the object.
To obtain design patent, it should be novel, although there is no substantive examination. Standard term of patenting is 7-9 months. Accelerated procedure is possible. It will take 2-3 months. The applicant may be a legal entity or individual. In case the design patent holder will be the individual who is also the inventor the payment of office fees are reduced by 95%.
