Design searches

Searching in design registers

You can search the Swiss designs register for designs that have already been registered using simple register data, such as title, owner or classification.


Other national offices, such as the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) as well as interregional organisations such as the European Union Intellectual Property Office  (EUIPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) allow you to conduct similar searches in their own registers. The requirements regarding image reproduction of protected designs vary by country. This means that some designs may be difficult to find. Some design searches may also not be exhaustive for other reasons. New products may be protected anywhere in the world, or not protected as a design at all.

We also recommend keeping an eye on the market, on product exhibitions and on trade literature, as well as doing your own image searches on the internet. Don't hesitate to consult a specialist if necessary.
