C.i.a Responses to the checklist of issues on enforcement (IP/C/5)
15. As regards the checklist of issues on enforcement, the Chairperson said that most of the responses that were still due at the time of the Council's last meeting had now been notified and circulated in the IP/N/6/- series of documents. As regards the few that were still outstanding, the Secretariat had been informed that these could be expected any day now. This meant that the basic material for the review exercise of national implementing legislation in the area of enforcement coming November would shortly be largely available. As regards the preparation of that review exercise, the Chairperson recalled that the Council had already agreed in May that advance notices of questions should be submitted to the Member concerned and to the Secretariat by 12 September, while advance notices of responses were expected by 24 October. A reminder concerning these deadlines had been circulated in WTO/AIR/666. Questions from the European Communities and their Member States had been received and would be circulated shortly.
