WTO TRIPS 31bis Amendment Goes into Effect

도하 선언이 있은지 14년만에 TRIPS와 공중보건에 관한 31bis 개정이 발효되었다.

The 30 August 2003 WTO decision on the Implementation of Paragraph 6 of the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and Public Health calls for the establishment of a dedicated page on the WTO website, in particular to make publicly available certain notifications made by members in using the “Paragraph 6” system established under the decision. These notifications can be accessed through this webpage.
WTO members on 6 December 2005 approved changes to the WTO’s intellectual property (TRIPS) agreement to make permanent the decision on patents and public health. The amendment was formally built into the TRIPS Agreement on 23 January 2017 after two thirds of the WTO’s members accepted the Protocol amending the TRIPS Agreement. It replaces the 2003 waiver for members who have accepted the amendment, but the notification requirements will not change.
