Chapter Summary

This chapter presents and analyzes the principles for the interpretation under international law, with a particular emphasis on interpretation of Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VLCT).These principles are used to identify relevant interpretative material from human right treaties and Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement. The WTO administers agreements within three areas: trade in goods, trade in services and intellectual property rights. The international conventions that are considered as meeting the requirements of the TRIPS Agreement of ‘effective sui generis’ protection of plant varieties are the 1978 and 1991 Acts of the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) Convention.
