Geographical Indications

A Geographical Indication is the identification of a product or service originating from a place, city, region or country with characteristics considered unique, whether they be natural to the geographical environment or resulting from human factors, affording these products a certain reputation, quality and notoriety.

Therefore, when tradition and quality of products and services are in one region, a geographical indication arises as a relevant factor to ensure identification and allow value to be attributed to the product or service that corresponds to the quality achieved. In Brazil, there are two types: Denomination of Origin (DO), when the indication is linked mandatorily to the geographical characteristics of the region; and Indication of Source (IP) in situations in which the indication is linked to human factors and not essentially geographical.
