Declarations, reservations etc.

A notification was deposited by the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium in which that Government indicated its desire to avail itself of the provisions of Article 21(2)(a) of the WIPO Convention. That notification entered into force on the date of its receipt, that is, on May 20, 1970. Pursuant to the said Article, the Kingdom of Belgium, which was at that time a member of the Paris Union and of the Berne Union but had not yet become a party to the WIPO Convention, could, for five years from April 26, 1970, the date of entry into force of the said Convention, exercise the same rights as if it had become party.
