Mr. S. Harbinson (Hong Kong)
A.2.i Procedures for giving effect to the obligation to notify implementing legislation under Article 63.2
6. The Chairman said that the Council seemed to have reached a consensus with regard to paragraph 12 of document IP/C/W/6/Rev.1 and the checklist of issues on enforcement as contained in document IP/C/W/9 with the amendments which he had read out, while taking note of the views expressed by Egypt and India. As to the Egyptian proposal regarding paragraph 11 of document IP/C/W/6/Rev.1, he suggested that, between the heading and Section 1 of that document, as proposed by Egypt, a general review clause be inserted along the lines of that in the amended document IP/C/W/9. If this was agreeable to the Council, such a chapeau would read: "These procedures will be reviewed by the Council, in the light of experience, at the end of 1997, inter alia to identify any elements which have proved unduly burdensome in relation to the usefulness of the information provided." The Chairman asked the delegation of Egypt whether, with such a chapeau, it would be willing to join the consensus on document IP/C/W/6/Rev.1.
