Peterka & Partners has successfully represented France’s Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac (BNIC) in registering the French "Cognac" geographical indication in the Ukrainian Customs Register of Intellectual Property Rights.

According to the firm, as of January 24, 2022, the import of "Cognac" labeled brandy from third countries, not originating from France, may be blocked by BNIC. "'Cognac' is the first geographical indication from the European Union which was registered in the Customs Register on the basis of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine," the firm informed.

According to Peterka & Partners, "registration of the 'Cognac' geographical indication in the Customs Register will have a great impact on the Ukrainian brandy market, as brandies from third countries which infringe the 'Cognac' geographical indication will not be imported to Ukraine, and consumers will not be misled about their true origin."

The Peterka & Partners team was led by Senior Associate Stanislav Koptilin.
