M OBSERVER STATUS FOR INTERNATIONAL INTERGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS
147. The Chairperson said that the list of the 17 pending requests for observer status in the TRIPS Council by other intergovernmental organizations were contained in document IP/C/W/52/Rev.11. She recalled that the Council had discussed these pending requests at its previous meetings, but had not been able to reach consensus on any of them. She said that, as requested by the Council at its last meeting, she had continued her consultations with interested delegations on the request for observer status from the CBD secretariat but that, unfortunately, she was not in a position to report any new developments in their thinking concerning this request.
