History of Made in Germany
With the introduction of the Merchandise Marks Act in 1887 the British government set out a clear indication of the origin of goods imported into Britain.
The labeling requirement introduced for the protection of the British economy became a trademark for goods produced in Germany, which was increasingly regarded as a seal of quality.
In 1891 the “Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks” entered into force. Many other states also professed unique denominations of origin.
Due to the German economic miracle after the end of World War II and the resulting high export ratio for Germany the myth “Made in Germany” was further consolidated.
