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

Mr. S. Harbinson (Hong Kong)
27. The Chairman drew the Council's attention to document IP/C/W/19 which contained a communication from Chile concerning the question of whether any formal notification was required by a developing country Member in order to invoke the transitional period under Article 65.2 of the Agreement. Given that this was a matter of possible wider interest, he informed the Council that the Secretariat, to which the letter from Chile had been addressed, had responded confirming that there was no requirement in the TRIPS Agreement on developing country Members to provide any formal notification of their invocation of the transitional period for which they were eligible under Article 65.2. Of course, once more in the interest of transparency, he believed that the Council would appreciate any information that such Members were willing to share regarding their intentions.
