The 2023 regular session of the Committee on NGOs will take place from 23 January – 1 February 2023 in Conference Room 1 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The session is expected to consider new applications for status by NGOs as well as applications deferred from earlier sessions. It will also review quadrennial reports of NGOs in general or special consultative status. The Committee is expected to meet again on 13 February 2023 in Conference Room 3 to adopt its report. This session’s recommendations will be sent to the Economic and Social Council for its approval.
Please note that to ensure a safe and healthy environment, completed COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all participants in order to access the UN Headquarters complex in New York. Mandatory vaccination requirements entail the completion of the full course of a COVID-19 vaccine recognized by the WHO or by a national health authority (i.e. the expected number of doses of the vaccine have been administered), with an appropriate official record from the administering body.
Please note: There is a maximum of TWO representatives per organization. Only organizations with applications to be considered during the current session will be approved.
No registration is required for organizations already in consultative status. You may attend with your UN grounds pass. Please see instructions on obtaining your grounds pass here: http://csonet.org/index.php?menu=86
