Publication of a cancellation request pursuant to Article 50(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council on quality schemes for agricultural products and foodstuffs in conjunction with Article 7(1) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 664/2014 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012

The requester is the legal successor to the original applicant group for the geographical indication ‘Mostviertler Birnmost’ and therefore has a legitimate interest in relation to the cancellation request.

5.   Type of cancellation and related reasons

In accordance with the first subparagraph of Article 54(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012

Point (a)

Point (b)

In accordance with the second subparagraph of Article 54(1) of Regulation (EU) No 1151/2012

The requester currently appears to be the sole user of the protected geographical indication. She has no further interest in using the name ‘Mostviertler Birnmost’ as a protected geographical indication and therefore does not wish to bear the inspection costs. For the purposes of selling the product locally (approximately 90 % is sold in the geographical area), having a protected name is not important because the name is already well known there. The low production volumes (approx. 300 l of Birnmost per firm; only three firms currently produce it) and the fact that the product is not very well known outside the region also support cancelling the protection for the name ‘Mostviertler Birnmost’.

No legitimate interests in opposing the cancellation of the protected geographical indication have come to light. All known producers of the protected geographical indication ‘Mostviertler Birnmost’ approve of the cancellation of the registered name and support the cancellation request.
