Ambassador Eduardo Pérez Motta (Mexico)
A.i.a Notifications from Members whose transitional periods under Article 65.2 or 65.3 expired on 1 January 2000 or who acceded to the WTO after that date
3. The Chairman drew attention to the Secretariat's updated note reflecting the status of the notifications received from these Members so far (JOB(02)/162). The note showed from which of the Members in question notifications had been received by 14 November 2002. Since then, the Council had received a notification of laws and regulations from Guyana, and responses to the Checklist of Issues on Enforcement from Argentina.1 From the 79 Members in question, there were now six who had not yet submitted any notification concerning their implementing legislation, namely Egypt, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Swaziland, and the United Arab Emirates. Notifications from a number of other Members were incomplete. Recalling that pursuant to Article 63.2 of the Agreement the notifications of the laws and regulations in question were generally due as of 1 January 2000, he urged those Members to submit the outstanding material without delay.
