A.i Status of notifications
6. In response to a question, the Chairman recalled that Section 3, paragraph 10 of document IP/C/2 should be read in conjunction with document IP/C/4, which contained the agreed format for listings with brief descriptions of "other laws and regulations". Discussion had taken place on the question of a more detailed approach to the provision of information which would be likened to a "road map", but no agreement had been reached on such an approach. As regards the format reflected in document IP/C/4, he drew the attention of Members to the working document that had been produced in the context of the discussions that had preceded document IP/C/4, i.e. document IP/C/W/8, which in its Annex 2 contained a hypothetical illustrative example prepared by the Secretariat of the sort of information which was to be provided under the format.
