This relates to registered design, design rights and international design and trade marks and sets out the changes we are making to UK law in the event of no deal.

Leaving the EU with a deal remains the government’s top priority; this has not changed. However, a responsible government must plan for every eventuality, including a no deal scenario.

This will cover the impact on UK right holders, businesses, and other organisations. Information relating to registered Community designs and international trade mark and design rights will be published in due course.

This complements the technical notice on trade marks and designs and EU exit published on 24 September 2018
