THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2019/787 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 on the definition, description, presentation and labelling of spirit drinks, the use of the names of spirit drinks in the presentation and labelling of other foodstuffs, the protection of geographical indications for spirit drinks, the use of ethyl alcohol and distillates of agricultural origin in alcoholic beverages, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 110/2008 (1), and in particular Article 30(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Article 17(5) of Regulation (EC) No 110/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), the Commission examined Bulgaria’s application of 7 January 2014 for the registration of the geographical indication ‘Ямболска гроздова ракия/Гроздова ракия от Ямбол/Yambolska grozdova rakya/Grozdova rakya ot Yambol’.

(2)

After concluding that the application complied with Regulation (EC) No 110/2008, the Commission published the main specifications of the technical file in the Official Journal of the European Union (3) as required by Article 17(6) of that Regulation.

(3)

No statement of objection has been received by the Commission under Article 17(7) of Regulation (EC) No 110/2008.

(4)

Regulation (EU) 2019/787, which replaces Regulation (EC) No 110/2008, entered into force on 25 May 2019. In accordance with Article 49(1) of that Regulation, Chapter III of Regulation (EC) No 110/2008 on geographical indications is repealed with effect from 8 June 2019. The Protection Regulation should therefore be adopted in accordance with the new Regulation.

The indication ‘Ямболска гроздова ракия/Гроздова ракия от Ямбол/Yambolska grozdova rakya/Grozdova rakya ot Yambol’ should therefore be registered as a geographical indication,
