PTO authorizes DO for craftsmen and grants collective marks
The local trademark office authorized use of the Colombian official seal of Designation of Origin (DO) to 40 craftsmen from twelve regions of Colombia.
The craftsmen who were recognized now have a certificate that identifies them as beneficiaries and/or producers or processors of a product that is protected with a DO and thus guarantee consumers the quality expected in each of those products.
Nine collective marks (identified as CISLOA, ECOSOMBRIO, ASOJAMAR, SANTALT, ARTS & SEDA, ACEDAR, SARASWATI, ASOCHIARTE and LA ESPERANZA) have been granted to nine different associations of craftsmen located in the cities of Caldas, Risaralda and Boyaca who met the pertinent requirements according to the Decision 486 of the Andean Community.
We will report additional information as it is available.
