Ambassador W. Armstrong (New Zealand)
B Guidelines for notifications under Article 63.2 relating to Articles 3, 4 and 5
13. The representative of Singapore, speaking on behalf of the ASEAN countries, said that, without delving into the underlying systemic issue, ASEAN wished it placed on record that, in not objecting to whatever consensus there might be on the various alternatives for notifications under Articles 3, 4 and 5 of the TRIPS Agreement, there should be no implication whatsoever that each and any of the ASEAN Member states had thereby waived any of their rights under Article 65.2 of the TRIPS Agreement, in particular the right "to delay for a further period of four years the date of application" of the provisions of the Agreement other than Articles 3, 4 and 5.
