Rewarding 15 years of Euromontana commitment on the topic of mountain products, the use of the optional quality term (OQT) ‘mountain product’ was protected in November 2012 by the European Union with the (EU) regulation No 1151/2012. Following that, the European Commission adopted the delegated act (EU) No 665/2014 in June 2014. Since then, several countries have moved forward with the implementation of the OQT at national level. The delegated act gave some room of manoeuvre to the Member States (MS). Euromontana has monitored this process in eleven countries so far.
