Members can submit most notifications, reports and review materials using the e-TRIPS Submission System
. The e-TRIPS Submission System is an optional online tool for the submission of TRIPS notifications, review materials and reports.
On request to the Secretariat, each Member is given log-in credentials (username and password) for the e-TRIPS Submission System. The log-in credentials are not user-specific, and therefore can be shared among colleagues of the same Member.
Traditional methods of submitting TRIPS notifications, review materials and reports to the TRIPS Council remain available. For any questions regarding the submission of TRIPS notifications, review materials and reports and how to submit, please contact the Secretariat at e-TRIPS@wto.org
Submit by email
Notifications can be submitted to CRN as attachments to email. While doing so, it is important that Members are aware of the following points:
Submit notification documents in Word format and attachments to notifications in PDF format.
Use the available templates for regular notifications as well as corrigenda and addenda, etc.
The address to which notifications should be sent is: CRN@wto.org
