GIview provides a single entry point for data on GIs registered in the EU, and is a useful asset for consumers, producers and intellectual property professionals.

It also contains detailed information on non-EU GIs protected at EU level through bilateral and multilateral agreements, and on EU GIs protected in non-EU countries.

The database is continually updated with official registered data from the Commission (Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development) and is developed and maintained by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
