New Database for EU Geographical Indications is Launched

Recently launched is the new public database eAmbrosia – the EU Geographical Indications registers, which will provide access to information on all EU Geographical Indications (GI), including their status (applied, published or registered), their product specification, and a direct link to the legal basis when they are officially protected. According to the European Commission, “EU Geographical Indications legally protect more than 3,400 names of products in order to promote the unique characteristics and defend the traditional expertise of their producers. Each Geographical Indication has specific legal standards on how the product is made, while also serving as a guarantee for the quality of the products.”

The launch will be rolled out via three phases: “Initially, the database will only comprise EU GI wines. By summer 2019, it will include EU GI spirit drinks. Finally, by the end of 2019, all EU GI agri-food products will be part of eAmbrosia.”

Quality schemes are explained here.
