Going to a fair?
You have two ways to protect your designs

When going to a trade fair, you may want to consider protecting your designs at national or European Union (EU) level. Besides the possibility of protecting your designs in one or more Member States of the EU, you can also protect your design in all EU Member States at once. This manual focuses on how to get protection in the entire EU market.

In this manual, our partner European Union Intellectual Property Office EUIPO explains the characteristics of two types of design:
– an unregistered Community design (UCD),
– a registered Community design (RCD).

EUIPO will guide you on the way forward and the key aspects that you need to consider.
