C Implementation of Article 70.8
36. The Chairman recalled that, at the previous meeting of the Council, India and Brazil had introduced the legislation which they had put in place to implement the provisions of Article 70.8 and which they had notified to the Council under Article 63.2. On the basis of the discussion that had followed, the Council had agreed that other Members to whom Article 70.8 also applied be urged to notify their relevant legislation prior to today's meeting. The Secretariat had circulated an airgram, WTO/AIR/71, reminding delegations of the need to notify the legislation in question. Since the previous Council meeting, three more notifications had been received concerning legislation to implement Article 70.8. Notifications from Uruguay and Turkey had been circulated as documents IP/N/1/URY/1 and IP/N/1/TUR/1. A notification from Argentina had also been received and would be circulated as document IP/N/1/ARG/1 in due course.
