Regulations on quality schemes

The European Commission has adopted several regulations on the application of EU quality schemes for the agricultural and food sector. Covering the broader context of quality schemes for this sector, including geographical indications and traditional specialty guaranteed, the legislation also explains how to use the logos in relation to each scheme, how the schemes should be applied, and covers the labelling guidelines for agri-food products which use PDOs or PGIs as ingredients.
