Ambassador Carmen Luz Guarda (Chile)
A Observer Status for International Intergovernmental Organizations
1. The Chairperson reported on informal consultations that she had held concerning the pending requests for observer status from EFTA, the OAS, the OIV, SELA and SIECA. Those had shown that some Members were of the view that further information should be provided by the organizations in question so as to allow a proper assessment of their requests by the Council. She would consult with the Chairperson of the General Council about a suggestion that a general questionnaire might be developed for this purpose. The five organizations which had requested observer status in the TRIPS Council would be approached for further information, either through the questionnaire if it were developed by the General Council or through a letter to be sent to each of these organizations on behalf of the TRIPS Council.
