Plant variety

You have created a new plant variety and would like protect your rights? You hold a plant variety certificate and a third party infringes your rights?

Dreyfus accompanies you in order to protect your new varieties and defend your interests during their exploitation in France and abroad.

Plant varieties are protected by a plant variety certificate.

The plant variety certificate confers protection on the breeder for up to 30 years.

Under this certificate, the breeder acquires rights to exploit the protected variety. It is therefore necessary to obtain prior authorization from the breeder to exploit the plant variety. This protection of the discovery of the plant variety makes it possible to reward the breeder for his work, provided that it is distinct, homogeneous, stable and new.

As soon as possible!

To benefit from a plant variety certificate, you must apply to the Committee for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (French certificate) or the Community Plant Variety Office (European certificate).

Dreyfus is here to guide you and verify that your variety meets the requirements for plant variety certification: novelty, distinctiveness, uniformity and stability. When your variety meets the conditions for protection by the plant variety certificate, our Experts carry out the registration formalities with the competent body.

Dreyfus assists you throughout the life of your plant variety. Our experts manage your filing requests, administrative procedures (licensing, risk assessment, etc.) and provide you with sound advice in legal proceedings.

With the support of Dreyfus, create, enhance and protect your plant varieties with complete peace of mind!
