UPOV is the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants established following a Convention undersigned in Paris in 1961 and updated in Geneva in 1991. Currently approximately 60 countries, including Italy, are part of UPOV. UPOV is based in Geneva, at the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation).
In the field of legal protection of plant varieties, the Convention provides for the contracting parties (a country or an intergovernmental organisation) general obligations including the principle of national treatment: a citizen of a contracting part enjoys, in the territory of each of the contracting parties, the treatment that the laws of the other contracting party agree or will agree to their citizens.
The Convention also provides that the breeder who regularly filed the application of right for a variety with one of the contracting parties ("first application") enjoys, to make the filing, of similar application for the same variety at the other contracting party ("subsequent application") of a priority right for 12 months from the date of filing the first application.
The UPOV Convention provides the conditions for granting the right to the breeder, meaning the requirements for the protection of a plant variety which, obviously, are the same as those provided by the Italian and EU law.
