Maintenance & renewal
Procedures for obtaining and maintaining design protection are bound up with formalities defined in the form of a large number of rules and deadlines. Failure to comply with these rules or meet these deadlines may cause your design application to lapse.
Design maintenance by Arnold & Siedsma
If a design registration is not renewed in a timely manner, the rights will lapse and you as the design holder will lose the protection of the design. Precisely because of the required novelty, it is no longer possible to register the model again thereafter. It is therefore important for you to be reminded of the renewal in good time so that action can be taken, as long as you still have an interest in the design. Arnold & Siedsma can relieve you entirely of this concern.
Renewal of a design registration
Using our own design management system, we inform our clients in good time of the approaching renewal date. Every design which is filed by us or for which we assume responsibility is automatically entered into this design management system.
