761–800. Appeals from decisions of the registrar.

An appeal against a decision of the registrar1 under the Registered Designs Act 1949 may be made to a person appointed by the Lord Chancellor (an 'appointed person')2, or the court3. On an appeal under these provisions to an appointed person, the appointed person may refer the appeal to the court if it appears to the appointed person that a point of general legal importance is involved, the registrar requests that the appeal be so referred, or such a request is made by any party to the proceedings before the registrar in which the decision appealed against was made4.
