4. The Chairman recalled that, at the previous meeting, the Council had drawn the attention of Members to the desirability of considering whether they wished to make notifications under the provisions of Articles 1.3 and 3.1 by 1 July 1995, in light of the relevance of these notifications in relation to the national treatment and m.f.n. obligations under the TRIPS Agreement which would apply for all Members as of 1 January 1996. He informed the Council that, to date, 19 notifications had been received relating to these Articles.
