Registration of International Industrial Design


Filing and prosecution of International Industrial Design Registration at WIPO -

Filing and prosecuting an International Industrial Design Registration is essential strategic approach

bearing in mind the tremendous growth of international and domestic markets in the context of the dynamic development of international economic relations.

W hen it comes to the question in which foreign countries, industrial design protection should be obtained, we as Bulgarian and European Design Attorneys compare and combine our worldwide experience and information about the situation prevailing in respect of each foreign country in which protection is contemplated.


We attach great importance to repeatedly analyzing and optimizing strategies in industrial property rights concerning the relationship between costs and benefits for our clients in particular. An International Industrial Design is definitely one of the most strategic and valuable approaches for companies and individuals contemplating expanding their business across the globe in the most reliable, qualified and cost-effective manner.


Compared to the International Trademark System, the International Industrial Design system does not require basic/initial applications and/or registration of national industrial designs. For instance, BG and European applicants are not required neither to have registered Bulgarian Industrial Design, nor Community Industrial Design (RCD).

As qualified Bulgarian and European Design Attorneys, we assist our clients with filing and prosecution of their International Industrial Design applications with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).


We may further give you a hand in case of objections raised by the national IP offices withing the prescribed 6-12 months after the International Industrial Design Registration. Thankfully, to our globally acquired relationship with well-recognized Patent, Trademark and Design Agencies, we are able to provide our clients with a qualified, cost-effective, transparent and  simplified procedure of prosecuting their design on a national level in case of such objections against their IR registration.


The international design system does not provide protection in the country of origin. Hence, in combination, with our services of filing and prosecution of Registration of Bulgarian Industrial Design and Registration of Community Industrial Design (RCD), you benefit from a fully-supportive centralised service withing a single entry point of contact, ensuring the most effective worldwide protection for every business.
