115.  The CWS noted the content of the document, in particular the progress report on Task 

No. 47 by the International Bureau as the leader of Legal Status Task Force.  The Task Force

delegations supported this proposal.  

117.  The CWS approved the revision of Task No. 47, the description of which now 

reads: "Ensure the necessary revisions and updates of WIPO Standards ST.27, ST.87,

The Task Force reported on discussions between Task Force Members and the Madrid Working 

Group about issues with INID code 551 for collective, certification, and guarantee marks.  The

Agenda Item 7 (i):  Report by the PAPI Task Force (Task No. 52) 

122.  Discussions were based on document CWS/8/21. 

123.  The CWS noted the content of the document, in particular the progress report on Task 

No. 52 by the International Bureau as the leader of the PAPI Task Force.  A revised 

questionnaire was proposed for Part 2 of the survey on public access to patent information 


124.  One delegation proposed adding a new question on whether IPOs  are planning to 

discontinue their Offical Gazette in favor of online publication services.  The International 

Bureau suggested changing the word "planning" to "considering", since planning suggests that 

a definite decision has already been taken.  The delegation supported this change.  The revised 

question reads as follows: 

“Q32. Is your Office / Organization considering to discontinue the official gazettes, and 

instead make related publication data available only via public online services? 


▢ YES, discontinuation of the official gazettes is scheduled or already implemented 

▢ YES, discussions and consideration to discontinue the official gazettes are 


▢ NO, we do not have any plans to discontinue the official gazettes.” 


125.  The CWS approved the questionnaire for Part 2 of the survey, as presented in the 

Annex to document CWS/8/21, with the new question proposed above.  The CWS 

requested the Secretariat to issue a circular inviting IPOs to take part in the survey.

International Bureau, related to providing technical advice and assistance for capacity building 

to IPOs, regarding dissemination of IP standards information.

128.  The CWS also noted that document CWS/8/22 serves as a basis of the relevant report 

presented to the WIPO General Assembly in 2021, as requested at its 40th session in October 

2011 (see paragraph 190 of document WO/GA/40/19). 

Agenda Item 8 (b):  Report on the Annual Technical Reports (ATRs) 

129.  The CWS noted the content of document CWS/8/INF/4, in particular the 2019 activities of 

responding IPOs.  At the seventh session, the CWS requested a proposal to improve ATRs, 

considering the complexity of the questionnaires, the duplication of other WIPO questionnaires, 

and the availability of this information on IPO websites.  The International Bueau did not have 

an opportunity this year to discuss improvements to the ATR process using the ATR channel. 

130.  The CWS noted that the International Bureau intends to present a proposal to improve

launched on November 4, 2020 on the WIPO website at

133.  Discussions were based on document CWS/8/INF/6. 

134.  The CWS noted the content of the document, in particular the current status of the

providing this information in the near future.
