Denominations of Origin and Geographical Indications

When the source is a value: Denominations of Origin and Geographical Indications

The mention of a denomination of origin or a geographical indication is synonymous with quality, craftsmanship and prestige. That is why their names are so appealing… and so coveted. Protecting them is a must.

The ongoing European regulation and harmonisation of designations of origin and geographical indications has made these seals of quality true guarantees of the quality of a specific product and geographical area.

However, the countless conflicts between local producers and brands with the Regulatory Councils are a reflection of the current protection panorama, and evidence that they require delicate and in-depth study and advising.

At H&A ABOGADOS, we have extensive experience and knowledge in the advising and procedure for the registration of designations of origin and geographical indications with the European Commission and, where appropriate, at the national level, as well as in the defence and litigation of conflicts between brands and these seals of quality. We know how to protect them
