Law on Geographical Indications Published


The Law an Geographical Indications was signed by the Russian President and officially published on July 26, 2019. The new Law will enter into force one year after its publication on July 27, 2020. The provision regarding liability for illegal use of a Geographical Indication (GI) symbol alongside an unregistered GI will come into effect on July 27, 2024.

The new law defines GI as "a sign identifying a product that originates from a definite geographical territory, with a certain quality, reputation or other characteristics which are essentially attributed to its geographical origin." Foreign applicants can successfully obtain GI protection in Russia if the GI is protected in the applicant’s own country and if it meets Russian legislative requirements.
