ActivitiesPlant Varieties


The law regarding the protection of plant varieties is a very specific industrial property right. It offers protection for new plant vari­eties and their designations, provided that the vari­eties have not yet been included in the list of varieties.

The statutory basis for the protection of plant vari­eties is provided in Germany by the Plant Variety Protection Act [Sorten­schutz­gesetz]. In addition, just one registration at the Com­munity office of plant vari­eties can provide protection throughout the EU.
