At the end of the transition period, we will establish our Geographical Indication (GI) schemes, as part of our strategy to protect regional and traditional foods. All current UK GI-protected products, including TSGs like Traditionally Reared Pedigree Welsh Pork, will continue to enjoy legal protection in the UK.
The new UK GI schemes will welcome applications from the day the schemes enter into force. The Secretary of State will be responsible ultimately for decision-making on new GIs, but we will work closely with Devolved Administrations to run the new schemes. The current enforcement and control rules that apply for GI schemes in the UK will continue to apply after the transition period, including the role of local authorities in ensuring that protection for TSG products is upheld.
