Australian Made logo trademarked in South Korea

In what is being described as a major breakthrough for Australian exporters, the Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo has been formally trademarked in South Korea.

The AMAG logo is Australia’s registered country of origin trademark for genuine Australian products and produce.

Having the logo officially trademarked in South Korea means that for the first time ever, Australian exporters have a symbol which can be used on their locally made or grown exports that both establishes their products as genuinely Australian and is legally protected under South Korean law.

Australian Made chief executive, Ian Harrison, said that the registration process had commenced in 2011 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," he said.

The registration covers a range of products including cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, furniture, food and beverages, as well as use in activities such as education and sport.
