LI/R/PM/3

ORIGINAL: ENGLISH

DATE: AUGUST 25, 2014

Preparatory Committee of the Diplomatic Conference for the

Adoption of a Revised Lisbon Agreement on Appellations of Origin

and Geographical Indications

Geneva, October 30 and 31, 2014

LIST OF INVITEES TO THE DIPLOMATIC CONFERENCE AND THE TEXTS OF

THE DRAFT LETTERS OF INVITATION

prepared by the Secretariat LI/R/PM/3 page 2

1. Member Delegations: It is proposed that the Member States of WIPO which are members of the Lisbon Union be invited to the Diplomatic Conference as “Member Delegations”, that is, with the right to vote (see the draft Rules of Procedure of the Diplomatic Conference in document LI/R/PM/2 (“draft Rules of Procedure”), Rule 2(1)(i)). The list of those States and the draft of the invitation to be addressed to them are attached (Annex I).

2. Special Delegation: It is proposed that the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI) and the European Union (EU) be invited to the Diplomatic Conference as “Special Delegations,” that is, with the same status as Member Delegations, except that those delegations could not be members of the Credentials Committee and would not have the right to vote (see draft Rules of Procedure, Rules 2(1)(ii), 11(2) and 33(2) and (3)). The proposal to confer the status of special delegation to those intergovernmental organizations is due to the fact that they have competence for the registration of regional appellations of origin or geographical indications and a number of their Member States are members of the Lisbon Union. A draft of the invitations to be addressed to the EU and OAPI is attached (Annex II).

3. Observer Delegations: It is proposed that the Member States of WIPO which are not Members of the Lisbon Union and the States members of the United Nations which are not members of WIPO be invited to the Diplomatic Conference as “Observer Delegations,” that is, inter alia, without the right to vote (see draft Rules of Procedure, Rule 2(1)(iii)). The list of those States and the draft of the invitation to be addressed to them are attached (Annex III).

4. Observers: It is proposed that Palestine, intergovernmental organizations and non-governmental organizations be invited to the Diplomatic Conference as “Observers” (see draft Rules of Procedure, Rule 2(1)(iv)). The draft of the invitation to be addressed to Palestine is attached (Annex IV) and the lists of organizations and the draft of the invitation to be addressed to them are attached (Annex V). As far as the non-governmental organizations are concerned, the list comprises those organizations which have participated in the Working Group on the Development of the Lisbon System, as well as organizations which have permanent observer status in WIPO and appear to have an interest in appellations of origin, geographical indications or trademarks. The Preparatory Committee Meeting may suggest other non-governmental organizations to be invited to the Diplomatic Conference. The Director General may also invite other non-governmental organizations at his own discretion.
