What kind of design can be registered?

Register your design at the PRH if you want to protect it under the Finnish Registered Designs Act.

In order to be registered, your design must comply with the requirements laid down in the Act.

We always assess each registration application individually and consider the design as a whole as well as all the relevant circumstances.

Our assessment of whether the design complies with the requirements for registration is based solely on the visual material you submit.
