The aim pursued by the Agreement is the protection of natural and manufactured products of the two Contracting Parties against unfair competition in commercial transactions. In addition, the Parties aim at safeguarding appellations of origin of certain products. Acts of unfair competition in commercial transactions are defined as acts of competition not in conformity with professional etiquette and likely to be detrimental to the enterprise of another person (art. 1). The Contracting Parties undertake to prevent and prohibit the manufacture, circulation, import, warehousing, sale or offering for sale within the country or for export of any products bearing or displaying on their inner or outer packaging, or on commercial documents, trade marks, names, inscriptions or illustrations directly or indirectly giving false indications as to the origin, species, nature or specific qualities of the products. Furthermore, each Party must prevent in its respective territory the use o f geographical appellations of origin and designations of products of the other Party listed in Annex A to the Agreement. Annex A contains: I) the list of French appellations of origin to be protected in Italy; II) the list of Italian appellations of origin to be protected in France. An subsequent Exchange of Letters, referring to the protection of the designation "Cognac", is attached.; FAO Descriptors: 110; 436; 083; 086; 410; 406
