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.

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.

We initiated another call for submissions at the end of 2019, this time on the EU's proposed framework for protection of Geographical Indications (GIs). As part of this process, a number of public consultation meetings were held to discuss the framework in more detail and to receive feedback on the EU's proposal. The consultation period closed in April 2020. See a summary of the submission process
