Industrial design focused cooperation framework of the five leading IP offices
Recommended design practices
The aim of the project “Recommended Design Practices” is to produce an agreed set of recommended but non-binding provisions endorsed by the ID5 Partners.
A finalized “Recommended Design Practices” document will be shared with the public, contributing to the advancement to the global design system and design formalities practices for the benefit of users and offices alike.
The “Recommended Design Practices” documents prepared by the JPO, KIPO and USPTO, provide support for certain design formalities that have been long discussed in international forums as best practices. Building on these “Recommended Design Practices”, the ID5 Offices in the future hope to consider other practices where commonality can be sought and achieved, making the ID5 and global design systems more efficient and effective for applicants.
