Compte rendu ‒ Conseil des ADPIC ‒ Afficher les détails de l'intervention/la déclaration

Mr. Martin Glass (Hong Kong, China)
310. The Chairman recalled that, at the Seventh Session of the Ministerial Conference, Ministers had directed the TRIPS Council to continue its examination of the scope and modalities for complaints of the types provided for under subparagraphs 1(b) and 1(c) of Article XXIII of GATT 1994 and make recommendations to their next Session. It was agreed that, in the meantime, Members will not initiate such complaints under the TRIPS Agreement. At its meeting on 21 October 2010, the General Council had announced that the eighth Ministerial Conference will be held in Geneva on 15 17 December 2011. At its meeting in March 2010, the TRIPS Council had agreed to keep the item on non-violation and situation complaints on the agenda as a regular item so as to allow Members who would have new thinking to share it, and also enable the Council to revert to the question of the further organization of its work in the light of any future suggestions.
