COMMISSION PUBLISHED THE INCEPTION IMPACT ASSESSMENT ON GI PROTECTION AT EU LEVEL FOR NON-AGRI PRODUCTS
02/12/2020
The European Commission has recently published the Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) on GI protection at EU level for non-agricultural products which is open for feedback until 28 December 2020.

There is currently no harmonised mechanism for the protection of GIs of non-agricultural products. Those products often make an important part of local identity, attract tourism and are an important source of jobs. A uniform system could support producers stay competitive and cooperate in niche markets, provide consumers with better visibility and authenticity indications for these products, as well as boost regional economies.

Feedback will be taken into account for further development and fine tuning of the initiative.
