Registered designs

All items marked with the Registered Design symbol are protected on the whole European territory.  

Protected designs

The designs of all the products showing the RD symbols are officially registed at OHIM.

Registered designs protect the visual appearance of the manufactured products. The appearance can be defined in terms of shape and configuration, or pattern and ornamentation, or both.

It is distinct from a patent in that registered designs relate to form whilst patents relate to function.
