Venezuela obtains representation in WIPO committee

By E.C.V. & ASOCIADOS - 25/03/2021

Venezuelan professor Mr. Francisco Astudillo Gómez was elected as second Vice Chair of the Standing Committee on the Law of Patents (SCP) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Mr. Astudillo Gómez election was decided during the SCP’s Thirty-Second Session in Geneva, from December 7 to 10, 2020.

The SCP was created in 1998 to serve as a forum to discuss issues, facilitate coordination and provide guidance concerning the progressive international development of patent law. By dealing with clusters of interlocking issues rather than working in isolation on single issues, it is intended to provide member states with an effective mechanism for setting priorities and allocating resources, and ensure the coordination and continuity of interrelated, on-going work.

The committee is composed of all member states of WIPO and/or of the Paris Union. As observers, certain member states of the United Nations, who are not members of WIPO and/or the Paris Union, as well as a number of accredited intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations also participate in the SCP.
