Therefore, the Regional Council is authorized, under article 2 of this Act, to request the registration of quality marks of the above-mentioned products. Within ninety days from the entry into force of this Act the Regional Council shall adopt provisions in order to (a) determine the designation of the mark concerned; (b) regulate the procedure intended for the concession of the use of such marks. The Regional Council, furthermore, shall designate those agricultural and agro-industrial products to which the marks shall pertain and shall also approve the related disciplinary standards (art. 2, par. 3). The Technical and Scientific Committee is established by article 3 under the Regional Council. Article 5 regulates the concession entitling beneficiaries to use the marks. Article 8 sets out labelling conditions to be fulfilled by the holders of the concession, including those requirements established by article 2 of Legislative Decree No. 109 of 1992.
