Where the Keeper has been informed of registered design rights, this information is included in the Register entry. Prospective users should be aware that registered design rights may still apply even though they are not noted in the Register entry and they should therefore ascertain for themselves whether the design is registered anywhere in the world.

If a design is unregistered, design rights may still apply to the design.

Legacy tartans
Prior to the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans on 5 Feb 2009 there were two private registers operating in Scotland: the International Tartan Index of the Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR). These have been included in the Register under Section 5(1) of the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008.

The text has been supplied to the Keeper of the Register by the STA and the STWR and prospective re-users of the text should contact the STA (www.tartansauthority.com).

The image is rendered by the Keeper of the Register from the threadcount supplied by the STA and the STWR. The image is subject to Crown copyright. You may re-use the Crown copyright protected image free of charge in any format for fair dealing purposes. The image must be acknowledged as Crown copyright and you must give the source as the Scottish Register of Tartans.

Prospective users should be aware that registered design rights may apply even though they are not noted in the Register entry, and they should therefore ascertain for themselves whether the design is registered anywhere in the world.

If a design is unregistered, design rights may still apply to the design.

For the UK, further information can be obtained from www.gov.uk/government/organisations/intellectual-property-office.
