“section” means a section of the Act;

“specimen” means an article with the design applied to it;

“textile article” means textile piece goods, handkerchiefs and shawls, and includes such other classes of articles of a similar character as the Registrar may from time to time decide.

PART II
APPLICATION FOR REGISTRATION OF DESIGNS

3.   Form of application

   (1) An application for the registration of a design shall be signed by the applicant or his agent. The application shall be in Form No. 1 or No. 2 or, in the case of a design to be applied to a set of articles, in Form No. 3 or No. 4, as the case may be.

   (2) Where it is desired to register the same design in respect of more than one article, a separate application shall be made in respect of each article. In that case each application shall be numbered separately and shall be treated as a separate and distinct application.

   (3) Every application shall state the article to which the design is to be applied and that the applicant claims to be the proprietor thereof.

   (4) Except in the case of an application to register a design to be applied to a textile article, to wallpaper or to lace, the application shall further be accompanied by a statement of the features of the design for which novelty is claimed.

4.   Endorsement as to novelty

The applicant shall, if required by the Registrar in any case so to do, endorse on each of the representations or specimens a statement satisfactory to the Registrar of the novelty claimed for the design.

5.   Application for registration under section 10

If the application is for the registration of a design which has already been registered in respect of one or more articles, or consists of a registered design with modifications or variations not sufficient to alter the character or substantially to affect the identity thereof, and it is desired to claim the protection of section 10 for such application, it shall contain the number or numbers of the registration or registrations already effected.

6.   Representations or specimens to be furnished with application

   (1) There shall be furnished in connection with an application to register a design four identical representations of the design, in a form satisfactory to the Registrar, or four specimens. Where representations are supplied, the Registrar may at any time before registration require specimens or additional representations.

   (2) There shall be furnished in connection with an application for the registration of a design to be applied to a set of articles four identical representations of the design, in a form satisfactory to the Registrar, or four specimens.

   (3) The representations of the design to be applied to a set of articles shall show the design as applied to each different article included in the set.

7.   Preparation of representations

   (1) Each representation of the design, whether to be applied to a single article or to a set of articles, shall be upon paper of the size prescribed by regulation 35 and not on cardboard and shall appear on one side only of the paper. The figure or figures shall be placed in an upright position on the sheet. When more figures than one are shown, these shall where possible be on one and the same sheet, and each shall be designated perspective view, front view, side view, plan or otherwise, as the case may be.

   (2) When the representations furnished are drawings or tracings, they shall be in ink, and if on tracing cloth or tracing paper shall be mounted on paper of the size prescribed by regulation 35.

   (3) Where words, letters or numerals appear in the design but are not of the essence of the design, they shall be removed from the representations or specimens; where they are of the essence of the design, the Registrar may require the insertion of a disclaimer of any right to their exclusive use.

   (4) Each representation of a design which consists of a repeating surface pattern shall show the complete pattern and a sufficient portion of the repeat in length and width, and shall not be of less size than 7 inches by 5 inches.

8.   In certain cases representations to be furnished in place of specimens

When specimens are furnished and are not, in the Registrar’s opinion, of a kind which can be conveniently mounted in a flat position by means of an adhesive upon paper, or by stitching on linen-backed sheets of paper of the size prescribed by regulation 35 and stored without damage to other documents, representations shall be furnished in place of specimens.

9.   Portraits, armorial bearings, etc.

   (1) Where a portrait of He the President or Her Britannic Majesty or of any member of the British Royal Family, or a reproduction of the armorial bearings, insignia, orders of chivalry, decorations or flags of any country, city, borough, town, place, society, body corporate, institution or person appears on a design, the Registrar, before proceeding to register the design, shall, if he so requires, be furnished with a consent to the registration and use of such portrait or reproduction from such official or other person as appears to the Registrar to be entitled to give consent, and in default of such consent he may refuse to register the design.

   (2) Where the name or portrait of a living person appears on a design, the Registrar shall be furnished, if he so requires, with consent from such person before proceeding to register the design. In the case of a person recently dead, the Registrar may call for consent from his legal representative before proceeding with the registration of a design on which the name or portrait of the deceased person appears.

10.   Designs excluded from registration under section 7(3)

There shall be excluded from registration under the Act designs to be applied to any of the following articles, namely—

      (a)   works of sculpture other than casts or models used or intended to be used as models or patterns to be multiplied by any industrial process;

      (c)   printed matter primarily of a literary or artistic character, including bookjackets, calendars, certificates, coupons, dressmaking patterns, greetings cards, leaflets, maps, plans, postcards, stamps, trade advertisements, trade forms, and cards, transfers and the like.

11.   Convention applications

   (1) An application for registration under section 13 shall contain a declaration that the application in a convention country upon which the applicant relies is the first application made in a convention country in respect of the design, whether by the applicant or by any person of whom he claims to be the legal representative or assignee, and shall specify the convention country in which such foreign application was made, or is to be deemed under sub-section (3) of section 13 to have been made, and the official date thereof.

   (2) In addition to the representations or specimens lodged with every convention application, there shall be lodged with the application or within three months thereafter a copy of the representation of the design filed or deposited in respect of the first application in a convention country, duly certified by the official chief or head of the designs office of the convention country, or otherwise verified to the satisfaction of the Registrar.

   (3) If any certificate or other document relating to the application is in a foreign language, it shall be accompanied by a translation thereof in the English language verified to the satisfaction of the Registrar.

   (4) Save as provided by the provisions of this regulation, all proceedings in connection with a convention application shall be taken within the times and in the manner prescribed by these regulations.

40.   Agency

   (1) Any application, request or notice which is required or permitted by the Act or these Regulations to be made or given to the Registrar, and all other communications between an applicant or a person making such request or giving such notice and the Registrar, and between the registered proprietor of a design and the Registrar or any other person, may be signed, made or given by or through an agent.

   (2) Any such applicant, person making request or giving notice, or proprietor may appoint an agent to act for him in any proceedings or matter before or affecting the Registrar under the Act and these Regulations by signing and sending to the Registrar an authority to that effect in Form No. 30 or in such other written form as the Registrar may deem sufficient. In case of such appointment, service upon the agent of any document relating to the proceedings or matter shall be deemed to be service upon the person so appointing him, all communications directed to be made to such person in respect of the proceedings or matter may be addressed to such agent, and all attendances upon the Registrar relating thereto may be made by or through such agent. In any particular case the Registrar may require the personal signature or presence of an applicant, opponent, proprietor or other person.

44.   Extension of time
