B.ii Arrangements for the review of national implementing legislation of Viet Nam
37. The Chairman noted that the first Council meeting for 2008 had not yet been scheduled, but that it would be expected to take place, as usual, in February or early March. In light of the statement by Viet Nam and using this approximate date, and in accordance with the standard procedures for the review of legislation, he proposed that the Council set the following target dates for the submission of questions and answers in this review: - Questions should be submitted to Viet Nam, with a copy to the Secretariat, 10 weeks before the meeting in which the review would take place. Accordingly, the target date should be set for 26 November 2007. - Responses to questions posed within that deadline should normally be submitted four weeks before the meeting. Accordingly, the target date should be set for 7 January 2008. In case there were any delays with Viet Nam's initial notification, the Council could revisit these dates at its next meeting scheduled for 23 and 24 October 2007.
