Question for written answer E-001928-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Alberto Cirio (PPE)

 Subject:  Products with geographical indications straddling national boundaries
 Answer in writing 

As a result of negotiations on the Caen Agreement, signed by the Italian Government in 2015, Italy’s maritime boundaries may be subject to change. In particular, the negotiations unfortunately provide for the ceding of some of Italy’s maritime areas to France.

For products covered by geographical indications, this could result in changes. Specifically, following a change in maritime boundaries, if an Italian product is then produced in more than one country, can the Commission explain whether:
1. It is possible to maintain the geographical indication despite the change in the country of production?
2. There are other types of products with a geographical indication involving two or more countries?
