Industrial Design Office Practices (Page 13 of 17)
13. Amendment of a design registration
The Industrial Design Office may correct a clerical error in respect of a design registration. Any request to correct a clerical error must be made in writing. Confirmation of any correction will be made by issuing a correcting certificate. In the case of correction of an error not committed by the Office, a fee is required (please see Item 11 of the Tariff of Fees).
The Office will record any amendment ordered by the Federal Court and will provide confirmation by issuing a correcting certificate.
When the Office is notified of other types of changes that occurred subsequent to registration and not affecting the design itself, the Office will make a recordal of the change in the DesignPlus system, e.g., a change of address of the owner, a change of representative for service. In such cases the application as registered will not be amended.
