To be credible, designation recognition must be based on elements that are unquestionable, justified and demonstrated by the reserved designation application.
The CARTV therefore carries out an in-depth analysis of the application and its context in order to accurately determine the product’s authenticity and, if appropriate, justify its added value. A public consultation phase is also carried out for new reserved designation applications or for major changes to specification manuals of previously recognized reserved designations.
