Abstract in another language

This article examines to what extent EU law influences standards for geographical indications (GI) control beyond the EU’s regulatory borders. In light of the theory of extra-territorialization of EU law and taking a socio-legal comparative methodological approach, it analyzes and compares how GI controls are regulated and implemented in practice in the EU and in Thailand. The analysis of the practical implementation of GI controls is based on one case study from the EU (Germany) and two case studies from Thailand. Ultimately, this article discusses to what extent the regulation and practical implementation of GI controls in Thailand is shaped by EU GI regulations. The findings indicate that Thai producers whose products are registered as GIs in the EU adopt the EU’s more stringent standards for control, while fundamental differences between the EU and Thailand prevail on the regulatory level.
