@SarahLudford I'd say it's grandfathering, "what's protected now stays protected", ie only names protected up to the end of the transition remain protected.

(Once the UK has its own system, *new* EU names would be protected if they meet UK criteria.)

But ...
@SarahLudford Article 54 paragraph 2 (on GIs) of the Withdrawal Agreement is legally complicated. The "grandfathered" protection for existing EU names is tied to EU law. If a name no longer qualifies under EU law, the UK will no longer have to protect it.

And ...…
@SarahLudford ... and it is clear that the paragraph on geographical indications can be terminated if there is a new UK-EU trade agreement (the subject of Article 184).

I'm not a lawyer but that's the broad picture as I understand it./end…
@SarahLudford P.S. to your question @SarahLudford: Are the "grandfathered" names protected indefinitely deal or no deal?

Answer: it applies particularly if there is no deal, for as long as each name is protected in the EU.

With a deal, this could be superseded by whatever is in the deal
