17. Please describe how additional protection is granted by your legislation to wines and spirits. Please mention other types of products, if any, covered by this additional protection.
The draft Law on Geographical Indications explicitly implements Article 22 of the TRIPS Agreements. Additional protection, such as that provided for under Article 23 of the TRIPS Agreement, may be sought based on Article 13 of the draft Law which provides that any person may claim a more favourable protection if it is provided for by virtue of any agreements, convention or treaty to which Bahrain is party.
