Mr. Tony Miller (Hong Kong, China)
169. The Chairman recalled that the General Council decision of 1 August 2004 on the Doha Work Programme provided, under the title "Other elements of the Work Programme", that the moratorium on non-violation and situation complaints covered by paragraph 11.1 of the Doha Ministerial Decision on Implementation-Related Issues and Concerns was extended up to the Sixth Ministerial Conference. At its last meeting, the TRIPS Council had considered what action it should take pursuant to this Decision. The Council had agreed that the item on non-violation and situation complaints be put on the agenda of the present meeting, and that the Secretariat be requested to update its earlier summary note, circulated in June 2002 as document IP/C/W/349, on the points raised in the Council's substantive discussion of this matter so far. Since then, this update had been circulated as document IP/C/W/349/Rev.1.
