Our Design Right Assignment Agreement template is for use when one party is transferring their rights to a design right to another party.

Design rights take the form of ‘registered design rights’ and ‘unregistered design rights’. Our template is suitable for both types of design rights. You can also use it to transfer the benefit of an existing application to register a design right where the application is currently pending at the Intellectual Property Office.

If you are transferring a registered Design Right then you will need to send a copy of the signed  Design Right Assignment agreement to the Intellectual Property Office to request that the update to Register of Design Rights to show the change in ownership.
