GIs have become a global phenomenon. As a result, national laws are rapidly evolving. Are you familiar with your national regulation concerning GIs? Do you know the applicable rules in foreign countries where you are (or wish to be) exporting? Do you know the implications for GIs of the current debate on quality policy within the EU? Are you aware of your local authorities’ position on GIs? Does your organization wish to be part of this process?
