EPA Helpdesk Webinar 4: EPA provisions on Geographical Indications

What are the EPA opportunities in Japan for EU GI-protected products?

The EPA guarantees registration and protection for more than 200 EU GIs for wines and spirits and food-stuffs, including beers, and the possibility to add new GIs in the future.

This webinar is part of a series of webinars by the EU-Japan EPA Helpdesk. Each webinar will address a different topic or sector and will look at the changes the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will make and the opportunities it will create. Each webinar will be accompanied by a factsheet and a practical guide. For more information on the EPA Helpdesk please click here.

The webinar was targeted to European SMEs seeking to export GI protected products to Japan.

Topics covered:

  • EPA opportunities as regards GI protection in Japan
  • Difference between GI protection under the TRIPS and EPA
  • GI legislation in the EU
