The Commission seeks public opinion on the protection of industrial designs and EU-wide geographical indications for products

The first public consultation refers to industrial design protection, that is to the rights which protect the appearance of a product resulting from its attributes such as shape, colours or materials. The second public consultation refers to EU-wide protection of geographical indications for non-agricultural products (i.e. handicrafts and industrial goods). Geographical indications are names like Solingen knives, Herend Porcelain, which identify a product as originating from a specific place from which their peculiar characteristics derive. Both public consultations
will remain open until 22 July 2021 included.
