It takes about three weeks for us to process your application. If there are deficiencies in the application, we will contact you to help correct them.
In addition to formalities, we examine
- whether the application actually concerns a design, as opposed for example to a patent
- whether the design is contrary to public policy or to accepted principles of morality, and
- whether the application contains more than 1 design. Design applications may contain several designs if they fall under the same main Locarno class.
