In order to encourage the research and selection of sustainable plant varieties, the Instance Nationale des Obtentions Végétales issues Proprietary Plant Variety Protection Certificates (COV : Certificat d'Obtention Végétale) to horticultural and agricultural institutes and crop breeders. The COV protects the discovered or developed plant species, as well as their denomination against copying for up to 30 years, enabling breeders to commercialize, produce or export the results of their research without competition and to make their research work profitable.

Nevertheless, there are a number of conditions for obtaining a COV, and IPSIDE's biotechnology specialists can help you assess your chances of successfully receiving a COV, prepare your file, file it, follow up upon it and respond to any objections from INOV. Finally, with the assistance of IPSIDE AVOCAT lawyers, IPSIDE can help you defend your rights against potential counterfeiters who may try to illegally take part in your commercial success.
