    The e-TRIPS Notification Submission System (NSS) is part of the broader e-TRIPS project, which aims at streamlining and bringing up to date the information services the Secretariat provides to members. The project comprises two other elements: a complete Information Management System, now the backbone of the TRIPS information services, and the e-TRIPS gateway, which will be integrated into the WTO website and provide a wide range of opportunities for delegates to access and make use of TRIPS-related information.

    Through the e-TRIPS NSS, members will be able to submit newly passed laws and regulations relevant to TRIPS, responses to the questionnaires established by the TRIPS Council, and regular reports on technical assistance and measures for technology transfer filed by some members and some international intergovernmental organizations. Traditional methods of notifying to the TRIPS Council will remain available.

  • Facilitators consult members on latest fisheries subsidies proposals #fisheriessubsidies Link https://t.co/DQd6ZMSoFz
    WTO Tue 15 Oct 2019 15:39

    Members considered a submission from China on how the WTO dispute settlement mechanism could be adjusted to apply to new fisheries subsidies disciplines. Members also discussed a proposed text from Japan on the scope of fisheries subsidies that will be covered by the disciplines. They further took up a proposed text from Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Uruguay to prohibit subsidies to fishing vessels not flying the subsidizing member's flag.

    Members had the opportunity to raise other issues and exchange information relating to prohibiting subsidies to illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and to fishing of overfished stocks, and subsidies contributing to overfishing and overcapacity, along with cross-cutting issues such as scope, definitions, institutional arrangements, and special and differential treatment for developing and least-developed country members.

    As in the September cluster of meetings, the consultations were...

    WTO Tue 15 Oct 2019 08:24

    In his remarks, the Director-General pointed to the record level of interest and attendance at the previous week's WTO Public Forum as a sign that members' ongoing efforts on WTO reform were gaining recognition. But he noted that hard work would be needed in the months ahead to translate positive momentum into concrete outcomes.

    “Despite the good work taking place across so many issues, we are a long way from where we should be. Time is not our friend," he said.

    "The world is counting on us to deliver a stronger rules-based trading system – with more predictability and less uncertainty. A system that unlocks opportunities for trade, development, and inclusiveness.”

    DG Azevêdo urged members to swiftly reach consensus on a new chair for the Negotiating Group on Rules. Failing to do so would endanger their prospects for meeting the end-of-year deadline for a fisheries subsidies agreement, he warned.

    In his remarks, the Director-General also called...
