Based on the practice of the previous review conferences, as well as on the draft rules of procedure of the Conference, recommended by the Preparatory Committee, which will apply provisionally for the session of the 2020 Review Conference until a final decision on this matter is taken, representatives of non-governmental organizations will be allowed, upon request, to attend the meetings of the Review Conference other than those designated closed, to be seated in the public gallery, to receive documents of the Review Conference and, at their own expense, to make written material available to the participants. Consistent with the Final Document of the 2000 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, a meeting will be allocated for non-governmental organizations to address the Review Conference.
All requests for accreditation must be submitted to the Secretariat no later than 6 March 2020 using the online form available at https://forms.gle/Vng5cZF57ZJBrcGz7. Non-governmental organizations must also submit to Diane Barnes (email@example.com) a written accreditation request on the official letterhead of the organization listing the representatives who will attend, including their full names and titles. Additional representatives may be included in a revised accreditation request letter, which should be su the personal email address and direct telephone number of a point of contact in the organization.
Non-governmental organizations that have not attended a previous Review Conference or Preparatory Committee meeting of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons should indicate previous interactions between the organization and the United Nations in relation to nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation issues. A mission statement or summary of work of the organization should be provided.
Those non-governmental organizations that have requested accreditation as stated above will be informed by the Secretariat by email by 11 March 2020 of the outcome of their request.
