Chapter Summary

The TRIPS Agreement is divided into seven parts. The introductory part (Arts 1-8) contains general provisions and basic principles. It thus forms the general part of the TRIPS Agreement. It is followed by the substantive provisions governing intellectual property (Part II, Arts 9-40). These, in turn, are followed by comprehensive rules regarding the enforcement of rights (Part III, Arts 41-61) which therefore, like the substantive provisions, constitute a central object of the TRIPS Agreement. The fourth part of the Agreement also holds a procedural aspect (Art. 62), which regulates the acquisition and maintenance of intellectual property rights, as does the fifth part regarding dispute prevention and settlement (Arts 63, 64). The Agreement concludes with transitional rules (Part IV, Arts 65-67) and institutional arrangements (Part VII, Arts 68-73).
