DESIGN COSTS

The costs for a design application is made up of fees, according to the effort, administration fees and office fees and can reliably be estimated in advance. The amount of costs depends significantly on the amount on designs that shall be protected. Several designs can be summarised as a cost saving for multiple applications of up to 100 designs. Also a design application in several countries can raise the costs.
