B Notifications under Article 63.2 relating to Articles 3, 4 and 5
17. The representative of Singapore expressed support for the United States proposal, which offered a flexible way for Members to fulfil their obligations under Article 63.2 in relation to Articles 3, 4 and 5 of the TRIPS Agreement. He wondered, however, how this flexible approach would work out in terms of the Council's review of the notifications in question, in particular if not all Members would follow the format as contained in the second option in the proposal of the United States in document IP/C/W/31 and in respect of Members that had already notified their legislation under Article 63.2.
