Compliance with notification obligations

Note by the Secretariat[1]


The present document has been prepared to assist the consideration of agenda item "overdue notifications" during the March 2014 meeting of the Committee on Agriculture. It reflects Members' compliance with their regular notification obligations as of 6 March 2014.[2]


In preparing this overview, the Secretariat has largely relied on the Agriculture Information Management System (AG-IMS), the public version of which was launched and presented on the margins of the June 2013 Committee on Agriculture meeting.

[1] This document has been prepared under the Secretariat's own responsibility and is without prejudice to the positions of Members or to their rights or obligations under the WTO.

[2] G/AG/2 and G/AG/2/Add.1 refer. This document therefore does not reflect the status of ad hoc notification requirements, i.e. those relating to: (i) the triggering of the special safeguard provisions (Tables MA:3 and MA:4); (ii) the introduction or modification of domestic support measures for which exemption from reduction commitments is claimed (Table DS:2); and (iii) export prohibitions and restrictions (Table ER:1).
