Nothing in the ITA expansion agreement prevents an ITA member from regulating, among other things, the content of these goods, including internet content. Nothing in the ITA Expansion Agreement shall prejudice a Member`s market access rights and obligations in trade in services or prevent a Member from regulating its services market. Decisions of WTO bodies concerning the Information Technology Agreement are available in the Guide to the Analytical Index to WTO Law and Practice Policy. Since then, negotiations have resulted in other legal texts such as the Agreement on Information Technology, Services and Accession Protocols. New negotiations were launched at the Doha Ministerial Conference in November 2001. The text of the Declaration on the extension of the ITA, including its Annexes, is attached to this Decision. In so far as parts are specified, they shall be registered in accordance with the HS 2(b) Explanatory Notes to Section XVI and Chapter 90. The declaration on the enlargement of the ITA will enter into force in the European Union as soon as it is adopted. The aim of this proposal is for the approval of the agreement by the European Union in the form of a declaration on the enlargement of the ITA.
