Unión Europea
H Review of legislation in the areas of trademarks, geographical indications and industrial designs
33. The representative of the European Community wished to reiterate his delegation's encouragement at the July meeting to those Members whose laws had been brought in line with the Agreement or were advanced in implementing the Agreement to have these laws reviewed as early as possible so as to facilitate the review of the large number of Members that were required to comply fully with the provisions of the Agreement as of 1 January 2000. New WTO Members which had accepted in their protocols of accession that they would not avail themselves of any transitional period provided for in the Agreement had to deliver on that undertaking and be fully subject to the present review exercise.
