Contents of the information service

The information service contains basic details of pending national design applications and valid registrations in Finland, and of international design registrations under the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement (WIPO) designating Finland. The images of designs are available as long as they are public. The details of international registrations designating Finland date from the time when the application was processed. Only renewals are updated in the details. For updated information, see the Global Design Database provided by WIPO. Open link in a new tab

The information service also contains information on some expired registrations and some finalized applications that have not resulted in registration.

For each design in the information service, only those representatives are shown who are entitled to represent the holder (owner) throughout the entire life cycle of the design, including the time after registration. The details of representatives only related to the application stage are not shown.

In addition to the above, Community designs registered by EUIPO are also valid in Finland, but their details are not included in the information service. Search for information about Community designs on the EUIPO website. Go to the EUIPO’s search page.Open link in a new tab

Please note that the details of international registrations in our information service are unofficial. WIPO keeps the actual international register and provides information on international registrations in its Global Design Database. The application number (beginning with DW) shown with international registrations in our information service is an unofficial application number used by the PRH.

Please note that finding no identical design in a search is no guarantee that your design is eligible for registration. There may also be other obstacles to registration. Read more about the requirements for registration.
