8.2. EU Accession to the Geneva Act on Appellations of Origin and Geographical Indications (A8-0187/2019 - Virginie Rozière) (vote)

- Antes de la votación:


  Marianne Thyssen, Member of the Commission. – Mr President, the Commission supports the recommendation to the European Parliament to give its consent to the accession of the European Union to the Geneva Act. On the substance, however, the Commission’s position differs from the one taken by the Council and the European Parliament as regards the possibility for all Member States to join the Geneva Act in view of the European Union’s exclusive competence in this case. The Commission would, very exceptionally, have been ready to agree that in this particular case, the seven Member States that have been parties to the Lisbon Agreement for a long time could have been authorised to accede to the Geneva Act in the interest of the European Union. In this respect, I would like to refer to the Commission’s statement on this issue, which has been submitted to the Council and to the European Parliament.
