Geographical signs and designations of origin are used to indicate the geographical origin of products on the market and a geographical indication can be the name of a region, specific place or, in exceptional cases, a country that is used for marking products that originate from such area – i.e., are produced, processed or prepared in the defined geographical area – and whose exceptional quality, reputation or other characteristic is essentially attributable to that geographical origin.
