Australian made logo now recognised in South Korea

In a major breakthrough for Australian exporters, the Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo has now been formally trade marked in South Korea.
 
This means that for the first time, Australian exporters have a symbol which can be used on their locally made or grown exports into South Korea that both establishes their products as genuinely Australian and is legally protected under South Korean law.
 
The AMAG logo is Australia’s registered country-of-origin trade mark for genuine Aussie products and produce.
 
The registration process began two years ago in response to the growing importance of South Korea as a market for Australian products.
 
“The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo’s formal registration in South Korea now provides an essential legal framework which exporters can rely upon in the event that the logo – or product carrying it – is copied or used without proper authority,” said Australian Made Chief Executive, Ian Harrison.
 
“It will also provide a legal framework for the Australian Made branded shops established in South Korea by Campaign Partner, SINI Australia.”
 
The registration work was carried out by Australian Made Campaign Partner, EKM Patent and Trade Marks. It covers 11 classes of goods and services (classes 3, 5, 20, 25, 29-33, 35 and 41). These cover a wide range of products, including cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, furniture, food and beverages, as well as use in activities such as education and sport.
 
The formal registration of the AMAG logo in Korea follows its registration in the USA and China. Registration is also pending in Singapore.
