Union européenne
D Implementation of Article 70.8
34. While welcoming the new notifications, the representative of the European Communities wished, nevertheless, to draw the attention of the Council to the fact that, according to the information of which he disposed, there was still a number of Members that did not provide product patent protection for pharmaceutical and/or agricultural chemical products and which had not yet acted in accordance with their obligations and, nine months after the entry into force of the obligations under Article 70.8, had not yet made notifications to the Council. He hoped that this would not be a precedent for future notification procedures and asked the countries in question to urgently undertake the necessary steps.
