Industrial Designs

Industrial design is the features of shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation that gives a special appearance to a product of industry or handicraft and serves as a pattern for that product of industry or handicraft. The industrial design does not need to have any artistic merit but must new. ‘New’ means not previously made available in Barbados.

Designs for products which are primarily literary or artistic in character cannot be registered.

Registration initially protects your design for 5 years which can be renewed for 2 further consecutive periods of 5 years each.
