Heads of Delegation (but not other members of delegations) will require credentials specifically for the session, even if they are already accredited to the Agency in some other capacity (for example, as Resident Representative). In accordance with Rule 27 of the Rules of Procedure of the General Conference, original credentials must be issued either by the Head of State or Government or by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Member State concerned and must be submitted to the Acting Director General, if possible not later than seven days before the start of the Conference, i.e. Monday, 25 November 2019, in order to facilitate the smooth proceeding of the Conference, in particular the work of the General Committee.

As of 2.30 p.m. on Sunday, 1 December 2019, original credentials that have not been previously submitted to the Acting Director General should be hand delivered to the Credentials Officer (M Building, first floor, room M01 19). It should be noted that credentials cannot be accepted during registration at Gate 1 of the VIC.

For any assistance regarding credentials, please contact the Credentials Officer.
