E.i Proposal from the European Communities and their member States for a multilateral register of geographical indications for wines and spirits based on Article 23.4 of the TRIPS Agreement (document IP/C/W/107)
53. The representative of South Africa wished to support the call for establishing clarity on the scope and purpose of Article 23.4. It was also important to obtain clarification of the legal implications of the registration system to be established under the provisions of Article 23.4 and whether the system was to be voluntary or mandatory. His delegation was still studying the matter, in particular the administrative and resource implications at the national level that might result from such a multilateral registration system.
