A drawing or design is the appearance of a product or a part thereof that is new and has an individual character. The appearance results from the features of, in particular, the lines, the contours, the colours, the shape, the texture or the materials of the product itself or its ornamentation.
Registering a design with the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) gives you an exclusive right in the Benelux area for a period of five years, which can then be extended for four consecutive periods to a maximum of 25 years.

You can register your design by filing it online. Before you start using your design and before you have your design protected it is, of course, a good idea to investigate which older designs already exist.
