The expression "industrial designs" covers industrial designs and models. Offices which issue design patents should report their design patent information activities in this series of Annual Technical Reports.

 

I. Evolution of registration activities

There are no changes experienced in terms of application filings and registration in 2004 with respect to the previous year .

- The number of the registered industrial designs is “ 564 “ from 1/1/2003 till 30/9/2003 .

II. Matters concerning the generation, reproduction, and distribution of industrial design documents and of secondary sources of industrial design information, i.e., official gazettes

There are no trends or areas experiencing rapid changes with respect to the previous year .

III. Matters concerning classifying, reclassifying and indexing of industrial design information according to the classification systems applied

The industrial designs are published monthly in the official gazette without photos , but only numbers and short description of the industrial design
We are going to issue a private gazette that belongs to D.C.I.P to publish the industrial designs , but we need the help of WIPO in this field .

IV. Search file establishment and upkeep

We don’t have any standard concerning classifying , reclassifying and indexing of industrial design information according to the classification systems because the protection of the industrial design is accorded to the general shape and to all classes , so , it is difficult to establish an electronic archive .

V. Activities in the field of computerized search systems for industrial designs

VI. Administration of industrial design services available to the public (relating to facilities, e.g., for lodging applications, registering designs, assisting clients with search procedures, obtaining official publications and registry extracts)

VII. Matters concerning mutual exchange of industrial design documentation and information

VIII. Matters concerning education and training including technical assistance to developing countries

In the field of seminars and training courses , we are looking forward to the help of WIPO to train the staff of the industrial design section in the field of classifying and electronic archive, in addition to the mutual exchange of industrial design documentation and information to promote the work of our section to the international level .
