I.ii (i) Follow-up to the fifth annual review
82. The representative of Brazil said he had no difficulties with what had been proposed. He thought that Article 66.2 was an important element of the TRIPS Agreement. He requested the Secretariat to provide background documentation or information on reports that had been submitted by developed country Members on their implementation of Article 66.2 for the review at the TRIPS Council meeting in October. He believed that it would be important to have an information document that would assess the implementation of the Decision and analyse or comment on the reports that had been circulated, and possibly make suggestions for improvement that would enable the Council to consider a reporting mechanism.
