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

Mr. S. Harbinson (Hong Kong)
C.2.i Procedures for giving effect to the obligation to notify implementing legislation under Article 63.2
8. The representative of Japan generally supported the notification procedures suggested in document IP/C/W/6 and the treatment of "other laws" as suggested in document IP/C/W/8. He said that the Council should agree on such notification procedures as soon as possible. In order to make the proposed notification procedures much more useful, he suggested that the Council encourage Members to prepare a list of cross-references between each article of the TRIPS Agreement and the corresponding provisions in national laws or regulations, to be submitted to the Council in addition to the complete text of the relevant laws and regulations. He believed that such a list could serve as a guide or road map for reviewing the national legislation of each Member. He requested the Council to give due consideration to such a cross-reference approach.
