It is a unified design filing procedure that covers several countries.

An international design application is equivalent to a design application in all contracting states designated in the application.

The procedure only includes a formal examination.

The registration is valid for 5 years, starting from the date of the application, and can be renewed for further periods of 5 years each up to a maximum of 25 years, unless the national law states differently.
