Accreditation of Non-Governmental Organizations to provide advisory services to the Committee

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that meet the criteria for accreditation set out in paragraph 91 of the Operational Directives may request to be accredited by the General Assembly to provide advisory services to the Committee.

Interested NGOs should provide the information requested in paragraph 97 of these Operational Directives and use the standard format (ICH-09) to submit such requests. Requests must be submitted in English or French, the working languages of the Committee.

Requests for accreditation can be submitted at any time. At its ninth session to be held from 24 to 28 November 2014 in Paris, France, the Committee will examine any requests that have been received in complete form before 30 May 2014. Requests for accreditation that are received after this deadline will be examined by the Committee at its following session. Requests for accreditation recommended by the Committee in November 2014 will be submitted for accreditation to the General Assembly in 2016.
