Chairperson
P OBSERVER STATUS FOR INTERNATIONAL INTERGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS
320. The Chairman recalled that, at the Council meeting in June 2002, he had proposed, following consultations, that the Council grant observer status to the African Regional Intellectual Property Office (ARIPO), the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI) and the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) on an ad hoc basis, i.e. subject to review in the light of any further guidance from the General Council on the grant of observer status to other intergovernmental organizations. However, at that time, not all delegations had been prepared to take a decision on the matter. He asked whether there had been any developments in delegations' thinking and whether the Council could now decide to grant ad hoc observer status to these three organizations.
