GIview has just celebrated its 1st year of existence as a project resulting from a collaboration between the European Commission (Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI)) and the EUIPO.
GIview provides a single entry point for data on GIs registered in the EU, and is a useful asset for consumers, producers and intellectual property professionals. It also contains detailed information on non-EU GIs protected at EU level through bilateral and multilateral agreements, and on EU GIs protected in non-EU countries.
Thanks to this platform, EU SMEs can already make a search for EU GIs in countries like Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, El Salvador, or Venezuela.
To read more, please refer to the EUIPO website.
