Design protection can be extended to other countries any time after the first filing in a country up to six months later. During this period, the newness is maintained.
There are several possibilities to protect your design abroad: An international filing at the World Intellectual Property Organization; filing at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) for all the European Union member countries; or filing directly in the country of interest.
