Previous consultation on the EU-New Zealand FTA

To date, we've held two rounds of public submissions (one in 2016/2017 and one in 2018).  You can read the submissions we have received here.

We also called for submissions on the EU's proposed list of Geographical Indications (GIs) for protection under the agreement at the end of 2018.  This included a call for nominations of possible New Zealand GIs that could be protected in the EU and New Zealand through the FTA.  You can find the details of this submission process here.
