The European Communities (Community Designs) Regulations 2003 give effect in Ireland to provisions of Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002 on Community designs. The Regulations prescribe a handling fee of €25 to be charged by the Patents Office to cover the administrative costs of receiving and forwarding Community design applications to OHIM. They designate the High Court as the court of first instance and the Supreme Court as the court of second instance for the purposes of Article 80(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002. In addition, the Regulations designate the Controller of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks as the national authority for the purposes of Article 71 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 6/2002, which deals with the enforcement of decisions of OHIM fixing the amount of costs.
