AIPPI Magyar Csoportja – Hungarian Group of AIPPI

Under the supervision of the Reporter General and the Chairman of the Programme Committee, AIPPI conducts its substantive work, namely, the study of issues of topical concern in the IP world.

Once the Annual Work Programme is established, Study Committees are formed to study each pending Study Question (SQ).

The Reporter General team prepares Guidelines which the Groups follow in preparing their individual Reports. The Reports are then synthesized by the Reporter General team into a Summary Report.

These Reports and the Summary Report are the basis for the Study Committees in the preparation of Draft Resolutions which are then discussed at Congresses. When a consensus is achieved, a final Resolution (Plenary Approved SQ Resolution) is prepared for adoption by the Executive Committee.

AIPPI’s Resolutions are published in English, French and German and sent to WIPO, WTO and patent and trade mark offices around the world.

Standing Committees guarantee that AIPPI is promptly informed about current developments in specific fields and monitor the long range projects of international legal development.

The representatives of AIPPI act as its ambassadors, liaise with all important international Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations and promote mutual coordination and cooperation.

AIPPI has regular high level contacts with international and regional institutions. In particular, AIPPI has annual meetings with the Director General of WIPO, enabling AIPPI to take account of WIPO’s proposals in AIPPI’s working agenda, as well as with major IP offices.

Furthermore, AIPPI meets regularly with officers of other NGO’s to discuss issues of mutual interest.

AIPPI endeavors to promote the development of national law in International Forums and Symposia and by direct consultation, in particular in developing countries.

These coordinated efforts for improving and harmonizing IP protection at international meetings often lead to relationships beyond the purely professional, which in turn deepen mutual understanding across national borders.
