The SCT Electronic Forum has been established pursuant to a decision of the WIPO Standing Committee on the Law of Trademarks, Industrial Designs and Geographical Indications (SCT) at its first session, which was held in Geneva from July 13 to 17, 1998 (document SCT/1/6, paragraph 21), in order to accelerate the deliberations and discussions of the SCT.
The Forum is open to all states members of the SCT and all interested states, international intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations which have observer status in the SCT.
The SCT Electronic Forum is used for the electronic distribution of, and submission by e-mail of comments concerning, preliminary draft working documents and draft Reports of the SCT. However, as decided by the SCT, alternative methods of participation, such as facsimile transmission or post are provided for those SCT members or observers who wish to participate in the Forum but do not have access to electronic communication means.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
