DESIGN – The agreement of the EU Parliament and Council on the revision of EU legislation for design

On 5 December 2023, the EU Parliament and Council reached an agreement on the proposals of the EU Commission for a revision of the EU design law. Notably, the EU Parliament and Council’s agreement concerns the regulation of the exemptions concerning spare parts, the prohibition on the protection of cultural heritage as design and the timeline for the implementation of the legislation by the Member States. The new legislative design package is now expected to be approved by both the institutions, before being published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
