Protection of Geographical Indications and Designations of Origin
It is understood that at a Regulatory meeting of Member States on the 11 December 1996, the third draft list of names was approved. The only additional item for the UK which was on the list was "Whitstable Oysters" which is granted a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI). [For more informations see 14 November 1996]
