Senator NETTLE (8:14 PM) —My understanding is that the first paragraph on page 3, which you directed me to, relates to notifications regarding entry into the marketplace of a potentially infringing product, whereas the one before relates to a request for marketing approval of a product or use during the term of the patent. One paragraph seems to relate to where there is a belief that an infringement of the patent may have occurred whereas the first paragraph I drew the minister's attention to does not mention anywhere an infringing of a patent being a precondition to this requirement existing.
