Can an industrial design be amended after registered/granted in Laos ?
The Lao IP Law only permits the correction of errors related to name, address or the applicant’s name and address according to the template form provided by DIP found in the publication of a patent after it has been granted. Correction requests must be made within 60 days of the date of publication and DIP shall record all changes in the database, document the registration and publish in the official gazette for the registration of industrial property.
After the industrial design has been registered, an industrial design owner may submit a request to modify partial information in the documents related to the registration. As for the modification of some errors in the registration application file due to the applicant by filing a request according to the template form from DIP as well as paying the service charge, DIP may allow for a minor modification only. DIP shall publish the information related to such a modification on the official gazette for industrial property registration.
