For a design to be registered, it must satisfy the following conditions:

    2. the design must be applied to any article by an industrial process
    3. the design must be visible and should appear on an article.

    10 Year Protection

    Designs registered under the Designs Act are protected for a period of ten years, renewable by another 5 years. However, design registration mainly applies only to designs applied by an industrial process on any article. Hence, items that are covered under the Trademark Act or Copyright Act cannot be registered as a design.
