GI has two functions, namely as a promotional product that has unique characteristics, and a source of information for consumers about quality, reputation, and authenticity. GI registrations can be submitted by institutions representing communities in certain geographic areas who are looking for natural products or products, handicraft articles and industrial products. The registration authority is the Provincial or Regency/City Government. Local potential is one of the characteristics that can have the potential to be registered as a GI.
