New geographical indication search tool launched
A new tool, GI view, has been launched on the EU Intellectual Property Network. It was unveiled today at the EUIPO/DG AGRI conference on “Strengthening geographical indications”.
The search tool currently includes more than 5,000 geographical indications. It can be searched by country of origin, name of the GI (in various languages and scripts) and file number. The search engine can accommodate basic mis-spellings and also has an autocomplete function.
Results can be filtered by jurisdiction and category. They show information including basic data, information about publication, protection under international agreements and pictures, and include links to relevant documents,.
Results can be shown as a list or on a map. The map view enables you to see exactly which area the GI relates to.
In a private area on the site, country authorities and producer groups can enter extended data on GIs, which will then appear in the results.
A video by EUIPO introducing the tool is available on YouTube.
