GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATIONS : state of play and future regulatory developments at the european level

27 January 2023 – Online

A geographical indication (GI) is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess characteristics, qualities and/or a reputation that are due to that origin.


In this webinar, we will define the concept of GI and explain the future development of the GI scheme within the EU and at international level. Using the case study of the GI for Limoges porcelain (France), this webinar will address the following key issues:

  • What rights and protection does a geographical indication provide?
  • For what type of products can geographical indications be used?
  • What are the impacts of the GI for the producers and the territory?
  • What role for the future European regulation on geographical indication?
