Register your design promptly

At Ansons, we work with people throughout Northern Ireland to help them protect the appearance of their product through design registration.

Interested in registering a design?

Whether you have a unique take on cutlery or you are on the verge of becoming the next Vivienne Westwood, registering a design can protect your work and prevent others from infringing it.


Ansons can assist you in registering your design at the UK Intellectual Property Office, the European Community Office (OHIM) and further afield.

So how does it work?

The design must be new at the date of application for registration in order to obtain a valid registration. Therefore, it is advisable to apply for the protection before making any public disclosure of the design.


The registration of a design secures for the owner a monopoly in respect of that design which may last for up to twenty five years in the United Kingdom or throughout the European Union.


Similar industrial design protection is available in other countries based on an initial United Kingdom or Community design application.  Applications for protection abroad must be filed within six months from the date of filing of the initial design application, claiming the priority date of the initial application.
