Notes on Design Procedure
A design application can be made in respect of one or more designs. In the case of multiple designs contained in one application, the design is effectively treated as multiple applications, and will result in multiple registrations providing that requests for registration are filed in respect of the designs.
A design application may be accompanied by a request for registration of each design covered by the application, at the time of filing, but in any event requests for registration must be filed within six months of the priority date for each design. Failure within the required time to lodge a request for registration of a design will result in the design application lapsing in respect of the design for which the request for registration is outstanding.
