Support to the development and protection of GIs in Africa

As identified by the Consultative Committee for the Continental Strategy for Geographical Indications in Africa, the EUIPO is supporting the identification to a set of pilot projects for the development and protection of new GIs from Africa, and more concretely from ARIPO Member States. The purpose of the assignment is to identify and assess potential GIs, providing details on the respective qualities linked to the geographical origin, the local resources mobilised and production processes involved. The assessment is likewise providing guidance on the next steps to be taken in order to convert the potentially identified GIs into protected and versed GIs in commercialization.
