EU: Commission launches website on applications to register quality products
As from today [Tuesday], applications to register a product as a 'Protected Designation of Origin' (PDO), a 'Protected Geographical Indication' (PGI) or a 'Traditional Speciality Guaranteed' (TSG) can be consulted on the website of the European Union's Directorate-General for Agriculture. This new service should contribute to more transparency, simplification and effectiveness in the consultation procedure before registration of a PDO/PGI/TSG, the EU Commission said. The rules on the protection of geographical indications and designations of origin of agricultural products and foodstuffs and the rules on certificates of specific character for agricultural products and foodstuffs foresee that at least six months before finally registering a product, the European Commission has to publish the main characteristics of the application request in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
