Details of any priority claim (Australia & NZ)
Priority document and verified English translation (NZ Only)
Minimum Filing Requirements
We require items 1, 2 and 3 above.
An Australian design application may include multiple designs. A New Zealand design application may only have a single design. Multiple designs must be protected by multiple applications in New Zealand.
The representations should include a perspective view, which may be filed later.
The representations should be labelled "Front View", "Rear View", etc rather than "Figure 1", "Figure 2", etc.
Photographs may be filed. Five sets of representations need to be filed in Australia and four in New Zealand so if photographs are filed please send sufficient sets.
For Australia the certified copy (and verified translation) of any basic document only needs to be filed if the Australian Designs Office requests a copy. For New Zealand the certified copy (and verified translation) of any basic document needs to be filed within 3 months of filing to avoid extension fees.
