Public Consultation (EC) – Evaluation of EU legislation on design protection


The European Commission launched the public consultation on Evaluation of EU legislation on design protection in the form of an on-line questionnaire. The purpose of the evaluation is to analyse to what extent the current EU legislation on design protection has achieved its objectives in terms of efficiency, effectiveness, relevance, coherence and EU added value, and it shall provide clear indications of the degree to which that legislation is still considered to be fit for purpose.

The consultation is open until 31. March 2019.
