They would hold up progress in subsequent meetings of the Biosafety Working Group. BSWG-3: a structure emerges The third meeting of the BSWG was held from 13 to 17 October 1997, again in Montreal, the seat of the CBD Secretariat.

Mayr, the chair of the resumed ExCOP, suggested that the two contact groups – on scope (chaired by John Herity) and on commodities (chaired by François Pythoud) – already established at the preceding, informal meeting would continue their work. A third contact group, on trade-related matters (chaired by Philemon Yang), was to be convened later in the week. The idea behind this proposal was that the parties would be encouraged to reach agreement on some contentious issues before the end of the meeting, so as to avoid a highly confrontational end-round of negotiations that would include trade-offs among all critical issues.
