What registered entails
By inclusion in the Scottish Register of Tartans, Derbyshire Tartan has established a clear criterion for the inclusion of a tartan in the Register: by being a new tartan that meets the definition of tartan contained in the Scottish Register of Tartans Act (2008) and that it is a new design and unique to the Register.
Derbyshire Tartan by having a registered design number protects the look and design thus it cannot be copied or used without the owner’s permission. A licence is required for any use, weaving or reproduction of the Derbyshire Tartan.
Using the name correctly
The name ‘Derbyshire Tartan’ must always be used correctly and differentiated in text from any accompanying words by using CAPITAL LETTERS, underlining or ‘commas’. This prevents the ‘Derbyshire Tartan’ name from becoming generic and preserves the high value and unique characteristics of the DERBYSHIRE TARTAN.
