A system for the protection of plant variety rights has been established by Community legislation. The system allows intellectual property rights, valid throughout the Community, to be granted for plant varieties. The Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) implements and applies this scheme. In 2009 the Centre submitted a corpus of documents to the CPVO in order to extract the terminology, the whole project scheduled for completion in 2010.
