Mr. S. Harbinson (Hong Kong)
Estados Unidos de América
C.1.i Article 63.2 concerning the notification of laws and regulations
29. The representative of the United States emphasized the considerable extent of the undertaking flowing from the requirement to notify laws and regulations for all countries, in particular for those with more advanced intellectual property systems, and considered that the development of a mechanism for such notifications under Article 63.2 was an urgent matter. In this connection, he noted that an examination of the notification formats established in other areas of the WTO with respect to the notification of legislation might provide guidance to the Council. He suggested that the Secretariat prepare a note containing a compilation of the various arrangements made in the WTO for the notification of legislation and that the Secretariat and/or the Chairman develop suggestions for a format for notification of legislation under the TRIPS Agreement.
