As you know, the UK is leaving the EU at the end of the transition period (1 January 2021) meaning that registered Community designs (RCDs), unregistered Community designs (UCDs), will no longer be valid in the UK.
However, we are pleased to inform you that a UK design registration will be automatically created by the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) for each of your European Community design registration(s) which are registered on or before 1 January 2021 to ensure that your design rights are preserved in the UK. Your EU design registration will continue unaffected by this.
In the future, to protect new designs in the UK, it will be necessary to file design registrations either directly in the UK or as a designation of UK in an international design application under the Hague-agreement. We will be happy to assist either way.
Patents and patent applications goes free. They are only affected with regard to minor formalities for some applicants, as the UK continue as a full member of the European Patent Organization (EPO), which is a non-EU cooperation.
If you have any questions about EU community design rights and Brexit do not hesitate to contact us!
