Paris Notification No. 115
Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property

Accession by the Mongolian People's Republic

The Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) presents his compliments to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and has the honor to notify him of the deposit by the Government of the Mongolian People's Republic, on January 16, 1985, of its instrument of accession to the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property of March 20, 1883, as revised at Stockholm on July 14, 1967.

The said instrument of accession contains the following reservations:

"1. The Government of the Mongolian People's Republic considers that the provisions of Article 24 of the Convention are contrary to the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples (Resolution 1514/XV adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 14 December 1960).

"2. The Government of the Mongolian People's Republic does not consider itself bound by the provisions of paragraph (1) of Article 28 of the Convention."

The Mongolian People's Republic has not heretofore been a member of the International Union for the Protection of Industrial Property ("Paris Union"), founded by the Paris Convention.

The Paris Convention as revised will enter into force, with respect to the Mongolian People's Republic, three months after the date of this notification, that is, on April 21, 1985. On that date, the Mongolian People's Republic will become a member of the Paris Union.

The Mongolian People's Republic will belong to Class VII for the purpose of establishing its contribution towards the budget of the Paris Union.
