Did you know that: EU Certification mark

It is known to few of us that the EU certification marks indicate that the products meet certain characteristics set and required by the EU, but at the same time they do no certify the geographical origin of the same.DpOwYYaXoAAo1E9
Below an except from the Europa.eu web site:
"In essence, an EU certification mark relates to the guarantee of specific characteristics of certain goods and services. There are four things to remember when applying for a certification mark:

Like an individual mark, an EU certification mark must be a sign capable of being represented on the Register of EU trade marks. In addition, that sign should be able to distinguish the goods and services that are certified from others that are not so certified.
When you apply for a certification mark, you must state very clearly that you are doing so (through a clear indication of the kind of mark in the application).
You have to apply for your certification mark in respect of the goods and services that will be certified by you as the owner of the mark (you can use the Goods and Services Builder to help you).
You need to include the regulations of use of the certification mark for which you are applying. The regulations of use are the essence of the certification mark. They have to be filed within two months of the application and need to contain, in particular:
the declaration by the applicant that it does not carry on a business involving the supply of goods or services of the kind certified;
the characteristics of the goods or services to be certified;
the conditions governing the use of the certification mark;
the testing and supervision measures to be applied by you as the certification mark owner."

Certification marks: geographical origin excluded

Very importantly, a certification mark cannot be used to certify the geographical origin of goods and services. Both the sign and the regulations of use are caught by this prohibition.
