Credentials of parties’ representatives
Rule 18 of the rules of procedure for the meetings provides that the credentials of representatives and the names of alternate representatives and advisers are to be submitted to the Executive Secretary of the meeting, if possible, no later than twenty hours after the opening of the meeting. Any later change in the composition of a delegation is also to be submitted to the Executive Secretary. Accordingly, credentials are required for participation in the online meeting and should be issued either by the Head of State or Government or by the Minister of Foreign Affairs or, in the case of a regional economic integration organization, by the competent authority of that organization. In view of the meeting being held online, parties should submit the signed and scanned credentials by email to Maria Socorro Manguiat (maria.manguiat [at] un.org (maria[dot]manguiat[at]un[dot]org)) with a copy to Jacqueline Nyanjui (jacqueline.nyanjui [at] un.org (jacqueline[dot]nyanjui[at]un[dot]org)) any time before the commencement of the meeting and if possible, no later than twenty-four hours after the meeting is opened. The officers of the meeting shall thereafter examine the credentials and submit their report to the meeting. Whenever possible before or after the meeting, the original copies of credentials may be forwarded to the Secretariat through diplomatic channels or by mail.
