E-005888/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-005888/2018

As announced in its communication on the Single Market Strategy, the Commission has decided to take work forward on how to make the most of Europe's traditional know-how. In that context, in November 2018, the Commission launched a thorough study to collect further economic and legal data on the protection of non-agricultural geographical indications (GI) within the Single Market.

This will complement an earlier study of 2013(1) and will gather additional data on issues such as competitiveness, consumer perceptions, the effect on the single market and the cost/benefit of further protection of non-agricultural GIs, as well as on the effectiveness of non-agricultural GI protection models.

In accordance with the principles of Better Regulation the Commission will consider possible next steps.
