How to maintain a priority claim for a design?

An applicant for registration of an industrial design may benefit from priority of an earlier application filed in another country which is a party to the Paris Convention.

A statement must be attached to the application indicating the date and number of the earlier application and the country in which it was filed and the name of the applicant.

The statement must be forwarded within three months from the date of the late application.

A copy of the earlier application certified as being correct by the responsible authority on the country where such application was filed.
