A 2003 agreement eased the requirements of the domestic market and allows developing countries to export to other countries where there is a national health problem as long as the exported medicines are not part of a trade or industrial policy.  Drugs exported under such a regime may be packaged or coloured differently to prevent them from harming the markets of industrialized countries. The World Trade Organization (WTO) is the international organization that deals with the rules of trade between nations. Since February 2005, 148 countries have been members of the WTO. By being admitted to the WTO, countries undertake to comply with the 18 specific agreements annexed to the agreement establishing the WTO. You cannot choose to participate in some agreements, but not in others (with the exception of some “plurilateral” agreements that are not mandatory). All members, including those benefiting from longer transitional periods, must, since 1 January 1996, comply with obligations concerning domestic treatment (equal treatment between foreign and domestic companies and natural companies, Article 3) and most-favoured-nation treatment (non-discrimination between foreign natures and companies, Article 4). The general transitional periods apply to original WTO members, i.e. governments that were members on 1 January 1995. Since the WTO, a number of countries have acceded to it. These countries have generally agreed, in their accession agreements (accession protocols), to apply the TRIPS Agreement from the date on which they officially became members of the WTO, without a transitional period benefiting from a transitional period. In addition to the notification obligations expressly provided for in the Agreement, a number of notification provisions of the Berne Agreement and the Rome Agreement are incorporated by reference to the TRIPS Agreement, but do not explicitly refer to them.
These communications will then serve as a basis for the councils` review of members` legislation. Article 27(3)(b) allows members to exclude certain types of plant and animal inventions from patentability in their country. In addition, Article 65(5) of the TRIPS Agreement stipulates that countries benefiting from the transitional period should not leave members benefiting from a transitional period behind (in accordance with Article 65(1), (2), (3) or (4)), in order to ensure that changes in their laws, regulations and practices during the transitional period do not result in a lesser degree of compliance with the provisions of the Agreement. . .
