Information that need to be included in the application: 


   [i]. The purpose of the organization; 


  [ii]. Information identifying the programmes and activities of the
        organization in areas relevant to the subject of the special
        session and indicating in which country or countries they are
        carried out;


 [iii]. Confirmation of the activities of the organization at the
        national, regional or international levels;


  [iv]. Copies of annual or other reports of the organization, with
        financial statements and a list of financial sources and
        contributions, including governmental contributions; 


   [v]. A list of the members of the governing body of the organization
        and their countries of nationality; 

  [vi]. A description of the membership of the organization, indicating
        the total number of members, the names of organizations that are
        members and their geographical distribution; 


 [vii]. A copy of the constitution and/or by-laws of the organization;


[viii]. A completed pre-registration form prepared by the United
        Nations secretariat. 


A Committee composed of the Bureau of the preparatory committee for the
special session and the Secretariat will submit by 10 April 2000 to the
members of the preparatory committee a list of the non-governmental
organizations that submitted their applications for approval. The
members of the preparatory committee will have until 10 May 2000 to
decide on the accreditation of these non-governmental organizations
based on each organization’s competence and relevance to the subject of
the special session. Letters will be sent by 15 May 2000 to those
non-governmental organizations whose applications have been approved for
accreditation. These letters will be sent to the representatives of the
non-governmental organizations proposed to attend the special session
and listed on the pre-registration form, subject to the conditions set
out in the following paragraph. 



In view of the large number of non-governmental organizations invited to
attend the special session (approximately 4,000 organizations have been
invited in accordance with the previous decision of the General Assembly
contained in resolution 54/142) and recognizing the commitment and
contribution of the NGO community to the implementation of the Beijing
Declaration and Platform for Action, it is anticipated that a very large
number of NGO representatives will wish to attend the participation and
representation of NGOs in the special session. Safety and space
considerations, however, may require the Organization to limit the
number of NGO representatives who may attend the session to three or
less persons per organization. It has been advised by the Security and
Safety Service that the maximum number of representatives of
non-governmental organizations who can be registered to attend the
special session is 2,000. It is thus requested that each organization
lists its proposed representatives in order or priority in the attached
pre-registration form. Once the number of representatives of
non-governmental organizations proposed to attend the special session is
established, a final decision will be taken on the number of
participants per organization that will be registered. Confirmation
letters will be sent only to those participants approved for
registration to the special session.

Please note that those non-governmental organizations whose application

rejected or whose consultative status with the Council was withdrawn or
suspended shall not be accredited to the special session.

established to facilitate communication about the special session.
