Leaked document: March 15, 2017 Note by Switzerland on India EFTA TEPA IP
Chapter

Attached is a March 15, 2017 note by Switzerland on the India EFTA TEPA IP
Chapter.

The EFTA is the The European Free Trade Association. The EFTA member states
are Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The document refers to
a proposed "Trade and Economic Partnership Agreement," or TEPA, between
India and the four members of the EFTA. The EFTA page on this negotiation
is here.

In this note, Switzerland is proposing that India agree to broader
patentable subject matter, particularly as regards biologic products, that
India adopt exclusive rights in data used to support the registration of
new drugs and vaccines (and other regulated products), and that India
eliminate its requirements for local manufacturing of patented inventions.
