Since January 2017, Turkey has a new law covering GIs (the Law No. 6769 on the Protection of Industrial Property Rights ).
In application of articles 2 and 46 of such law, the “Geographical Indication and Traditional Knowledge Logo Regulation” (available only in Turkish), was published in December 2017 and entered into force on 10 January 2018. The logo is obligatory for GIs registered in Turkey according to the national procedure. Foreign GIs protected in Turkey according to the bilateral and multilateral agreements to which Turkey is a party, are excluded from such obligation.
