Submissions of information on possible interrelations between the International Treaty and the relevant international instruments of UPOV and WIPO

The Secretariat invited submission of information on possible interrelations between the International Treaty, in particular its Article 9 (Farmers’ Rights), and the relevant international instruments of UPOV and WIPO. All inputs received were brought to the attention of the Ad Hoc Committee on Sustainable Use at its second meeting in March 2015, which processed the identified interrelations for transmission to UPOV and WIPO. This follows Resolution 8/2013, by which the Governing Body "request[ed] the Secretary to invite UPOV and WIPO to jointly identify possible areas of interrelations among their respective international instruments." The submissions are presented below in the form and language in which they were received.
