Change of design right owner's name, domicile or registered office, and address

Inform the PRH of changes to your name, domicile or registered office, and address by filing an application to record the changes.

We will update the changes for the designs you refer to in the application, and also for your other registered design rights and pending design right matters. This is to make sure that the details in the Designs Register are correct and up to date.

Finnish design right owners

Your application must include the following details:

  • registration number of the design
  • your new company name, domicile or registered office, and address if they have changed.

You do not need to submit a Trade Register extract for the new name of a Finnish company.

Foreign design right owners

Your application must include the following details and documents:

  • registration number of the design
  • your new company name, domicile or registered office, and
  • copy of a document providing proof of the change of name, domicile or registered office, for example a copy of a Trade Register extract or of another official document (such as a certificate given by a notary public).

How to file the changes

Filing changes to the owner's name, domicile or registered office is free of charge.

Use our application form concerning a registered design (available in Finnish and in Swedish) to submit the changes. Go to the page with the application form.
