The new system is called the system design registration system, which has not been previously shared with the public and has been developed so that the right to use designs with distinctive features can belong to the design owner. Design registration is the process that is done so that this right can be obtained by the design owner.
Not every design is subject to registration process. For example, designs that violate public morality that are contrary to general morality are not registered.

The distinctive feature sought in design can be in design, color, texture, general appearance, lines.
