  • On July 18, 2019, the Duma passed the bill on geographical indications (GI) in its final reading. This is a new and long awaited IP subject matter. Relevant provisions are sandwiched by the side of appellations of origin (AO) in the same section. It is also a means of individualization and denotes the goods whose characteristics are related to their geographical origin. It differs from AO in that the latter is used for the goods the properties of which “exclusively or mainly” are determined by their geographical origin, i.e. by natural or human resources of a specific geographical location. The requirements for the goods for which the geographical indication will be used are related to the geographical location to a “certain large extent” only.
