Future accession of Switzerland to the Geneva Act

Last 5th June, the Federal Council approved and proposed to the Parliament the ratification of the Geneva Act of the Lisbon Agreement on Appellations of Origin (AOs) and Geographical Indications (GIs). The project will be examined at the end of the year and should be ratified in mid-2021. This accession would enable Swiss producers to use the international registration procedure for protected AOs and GIs. Our last paper gives an overview of the protection system in Switzerland along with the consequences of the likely upcoming ratification of the Geneva Act.
