17/11/2016 - #NewZealand #Wines #Spirits: New GIs law finally adopted

wine garden toursOn 17 November, the Geographical Indications (Wine and Spirits) Registration Amendment Bill was adopted by the New Zealand Parliament. It amended the Geographical Indications (Wines and Spirits) Registration Act which passed in 2006, but never entered into force.

The Amendment Bill introduces a sui generis system for the protection of GIs for wines and spirits in New Zealand, opened also to foreign GIs. The full text of the Geographical Indications Amendment Bill is available here

The adoption of this law confirms a global trend which sees more and more countries implementing sui generis legislations to protect GIs. Likewise, it is a very positive news for New Zealand GIs in the wines and spirit sectors (New Zealand wine exports are valued at $1.6 billion for the year to the end of October 2016) as well as for foreign ones.
