Article 35 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002 of 12th December 2001 on Community designs (OJ No. L 3, 5.1.2002, p. 1) (“the Regulation”) provides that applications for a registered Community design may be filed at the central industrial property office (“the office”) of a Member State (Article 35.1). It further provides that a fee may be charged by the office for the receiving of such an application and the forwarding of the same to the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Article 35.2).
The central industrial property office in the UK is the Patent Office.
These Regulations prescribe the fee of £15.00 for the receipt of, and forwarding by, the Patent Office of an application for a registered Community design pursuant to Article 35 of the Regulation.
