This public consultation targets the general public and stakeholders such as producers, processors, national authorities and researchers. The aim is to gather feedback on the understanding and perception of the EU quality schemes. The public consultation is available in all official EU languages and is opened for a period of 12 weeks.

GIs are protected names of products that have a special link to their geographical origin. They comprise three types of GI (Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and Geographical Indication (GI)), depending on the type of product and how strong the link is to their region of origin. The TSG designation highlights the traditional aspect of the product, such as the way the product is made or its composition, without being linked to a specific geographical area.

Participants in the public consultation will have the opportunity to give their opinion on the performance of the schemes and how to improve efficiency and simplify the EU quality schemes’ procedures. This includes the registration of a name, amendments to the product specifications and cancellation of a registered name.

The public consultation is part of an overall evaluation of the EU quality schemes. The evaluation will assess how effective, efficient, relevant and consistent these schemes are.
