Geographical Indications
Adjust font size:

Geographical indications refer to the indications that identify a particular good as originating in a region, where a given quality, reputation or other characteristic of the goods is essentially attributable to its natural or human factors. Geographical indications are protected through trademark laws in China, since they can be registered as certification marks and collective marks. Up to now, there have been over 100 certification marks with geographical indications therein registered in China, including American "Florida" oranges, Chinese "Kuerle Pear" (Xinjiang Autonomous Region), "Hami Melon", "Jingdezhen china" (Jiangxi province) and so on.
