Ambassador W. Armstrong (New Zealand)
H Review of legislation in the areas of trademarks, geographical indications and industrial designs
40. The representative of Poland confirmed that his delegation had received a number of questions concerning his country's legislation in the areas presently under review, including from the United States. However, Poland was enjoying the transitional period to which it was entitled under the TRIPS Agreement. His authorities had carefully examined the questions that had been put to Poland and had come to the conclusion that it would be premature to subject Poland's legislation at this time to the review exercise. The Chairman's proposal to hold consultations concerning an advance review of the legislation of a number of Members was a constructive one, but its acceptability hinged on certain caveats as indicated by previous speakers. His delegation would continue with its efforts to bring Poland's legislation into conformity with the TRIPS Agreement.
