The first geographical indication is registered by Rospatent



The first geographical indication for unique goods «Шуйское мыло»(«Shuyskoe soap») was registered in Russia 10th of December 2020


The application for it was filed by a company with the same name at the beginning of August 2020. According to the Head of Rospatent Grigory Ivliev, Russian regions produce a lot of original goods that are popular among visitors and local residents. All of them are unique precisely because of their geographical origin and observance of traditional production methods. The law on geographical indication as a new marketing tool has given great opportunities for regional producers to promote their products on the Russian market and to attract additional investment.
