You can apply to restore a design up to twelve months after it should have been renewed.
You can check the renewal date by doing a design search.
If it is now 6 months or later since the date when the design should have been renewed, use this form. If however it is less than 6 months since the due date of renewal, use form DF9A ‘Renewal of design registration’.
You do not have to send us a renewal request with this Form, but you must send us a renewal request (form DF9A ‘Renewal of design registration’) and pay the correct renewal fees if we agree to restore the design.
You must attach a statement and additional evidence (if any), fully explaining why you did not renew the design in time.
Fee payable forms must be accompanied with a completed fee sheet.
