Geographical indications from Georgia
According to this morning's online Official Journal, negotiations for an Agreement between the European Community and Georgia on Protection of Geographical Indications of Agricultural Products and Foodstuffs are underway.  Accordingly the protection in the European Community, as geographical indications, of 18 names listed at the end of this document in respect of wines are set out for consideration.

The Commission invites any Member State or third country or any natural or legal persons having a legitimate interest, resident or established in a Member State or in a third country [eg the holder of a relevant Community trade mark, national trade mark or other right], to submit objections to such protection by lodging a duly substantiated statement.

Statements of objection must reach the Commission within two months of today's date. Statements of objection should be sent to AGRI-B3-GI@ec.europa.eu and will be examined only if (i) they are received within the time limit and (ii) show that the protection of the name proposed would conflict with or be complete or partial homonyms of certain other names.
