What practical steps do I have to take to obtain geographical indication protection?

The practical steps to be taken vary depending largely on the purpose and the geographical scope of the protection you desire.

In the broadest terms, if you are considering protection limited to the national level, then your first port-of-call should be your relevant intellectual property (IP) office or the national (regional) competent authority in charge of GIs.

Who can apply for GI’s registration?

Any association of persons or producers or any organization or authority established by or under any law for the time being in force representing the interest of the producers of the concerned goods, who are desirous of registering geographical indication in relation to such goods shall apply in writing to the Registrar in such’ form and in such manner and accompanied by such fees as may be prescribed for the registration of the geographical indication.
