Follow the process of registering your design
Through INPI alerts, you can follow the development process of registering your design. Whenever there is a change in the registration application, INPI will notify you by email.
These alerts also serve to, after registration, closely follow the life of your design.
Design registration can be maintained for 25 years
Registration is valid for 5 years and may be renewed for another four periods of 5 years each as long as the holder pays the fees. To keep the design valid, the holder also needs to fulfil other requirements.
A registered design cannot be changed
Once registered, a design cannot be changed, nor by the owner himself. At most, it can be scaled up or down.
However, changes to the essential characteristics of a design may be registered provided that they are new and unique, and a new design is registered.
