E Review of the application of the provisions of the Section on geographical indications under Article 24.2
34. The Chairman recalled that, at the Council's meeting in May, he had raised the question of how the Council should meet the terms of its review under Article 24.2 concerning geographical indications. When this item had been addressed again in July, delegations had noted that they still needed more time to reflect upon the matter. However, since the review was required to be undertaken by the end of the year and the Council's next meeting was scheduled to be its last meeting this year, it seemed timely to consider this question further.
