Geographical Indications Regulations Soon Effective

The Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) informs that the Government has approved the Geographical Indications (Wine and Spirits) Registration Regulations 2017.

The Regulations set out the procedure for examining and registering a geographical indication under the Geographical Indications (Wine and Spirits) Registration Act 2006. The Act and Regulations will come into force on July 27, 2017.

After this date it will be possible to apply to register a geographical indication in New Zealand. The registration process, and the Register of Geographical Indications, will be administered by IPONZ.
