Geographical indications, along with factory marks, trademark or service mark, brand and commercial logo, belong to the category of distinctive signs of the trade activity, which forms, together with the category of technical or aesthetic new creations related to industrial products, one of the two great branches of intellectual property, namely industrial property.

The study describes the registration procedure for geographical indications and designations of origin in the European Union system (national exam also in the European Commission), and the registration of geographical indications with OSIM (Romanian State Office for Inventions and Trademarks). The study also presents a series of statistical data at EU level concerning protected geographical indications, protected designations of origin and traditional specialties guaranteed.
