The PTO has ordered the publication of a list of Geographical Indications and/or Designation of Origin from the European Union. It has requested its recognition to the European Union on October 27th, 2017 in the context of the negotiations of the Free Trade Agreement MERCOSUR - European Union.
The present publication is made so that any person ( natural or legal) that can be affected by this recognition can file objections to the recognition of the Geographical Indication and/or Designation of Origin.
The deadline to file objections will expire 30 days after such list is published in a newspaper of large circulation. The deadline is already running.
