You can protect your design for up to 25 years. However, you must extend the protection every five years.
The maintenance of your design for a maximum of 25 years requires the payment of a renewal fee every 5 years. This amounts to € 130 in the case of single designs and € 88 per individual designs where multiple designs are concerned. Due dates of renewal fees can be queried online. For this you need your register or reference number (e.g. 62049 or 12/2009).
