EU regulation on geographical indications for craft and industrial products

The European Regulation on geographical indications (GIs) for the protection of  craft and industrial products entered into force on November 16th, and will apply from December 1st, 2025 throughout the European Union.

This regulation aims to protect craft and industrial products, such as jewelry, textiles, glass, porcelain, etc., complementing the protection that already exists at European level for geographical indications of an agricultural nature (such as Champagne, Prosciutto de Parma, Port Wine, Ovos Moles de Aveiro or Pineapple from the Azores).
