Industrial Designs

The Registrar may, on the application made in the prescribed form and manner of any person claiming to be the proprietor of any new or original design not previously published in Guyana, register the design.

The same design may be registered in more than one class, and, in case of doubt as to the class in which a design ought to be registered, the Registrar may decide the question.

An application which, owing to any default or neglect on the part of the applicant, has not been completed so as to enable registration to be effected within the prescribed time shall be deemed to be abandoned.

A design when registered shall be registered as of the date of the application for registration.
