C.3.b.iii Possible role of the Secretariat
105. The representative of the European Communities asked whether the Secretariat was supposed, under the joint proposal, to include in the register any name that obviously was not a GI. In other words, would there be some sort of "sanity check" or would anything be inscribed in the registry and thereafter bind the national authorities? He further asked whether under the joint proposal the WTO Secretariat was supposed to translate such names into the three WTO languages for example.
