The novelty of the application model shall be assessed on the basis of the same principles as the novelty of the invention. The utility model to be protected must be new. This means that, as in the case of an invention, it must be a new solution on a global scale. The novelty test is to determine whether the test pattern is not an element of the existing state of the art, i.e. it has not been made available to the public in any way. It's about the fact of sharing, not whether or not anyone has read the pattern. A utility model shall not be considered to be new if, before the date on which priority is given to the right of protection has been made, it is made available to the public by written or oral description by the use, issue or disclosure in another Way.
