Recording a change before the Community designs office

Change of name/address

There is no official fee for recording a change of name or address of the owner of a Community design.

The change will be recorded in the Office’s database for all the designs owned by the same owner.

No document showing the change is needed.

If we were not the representative for the application, we need a power of attorney.


The official fee for recording an assignment or licence is of 200 €.

We need to know the name and address of the party to which the design is assigned, as well as the name and capacity of the persons signing the document for both parties.

We prepare and send you for signature:

- the declaration to be signed by both parties, and

- a power of attorney to be signed by your client.

The documents do not need to be notarized or legalized.
