Conference menu

The registration to CSP5 will be open from 24 May to 09 August 2019.

With reference to the ATT Rules of Procedure (RoP) (here), the following registration process applies for the different categories of delegations who wish to attend the Fifth Conference of States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty (CSP5).

States Parties, Signatory States and Observer States wishing to send a delegation to CSP5 (in accordance with RoP 1, 2 or 3) should submit a NOTE VERBALE to the Head of the ATT Secretariat listing all delegates, indicating the full name and position of each delegate. The head of the delegation, alternate(s) and advisor(s) should be clearly indicated. In addition to this, each individual member of the delegation must register online (here).

International and Regional Organizations wishing to send a delegation to CSP5 (in accordance with RoP 4) should submit a NOTE VERBALE to the Head of the ATT Secretariat listing all delegates, indicating the full name and position of each delegate. The head of the delegation, alternate(s) and advisor(s) should be clearly indicated. In addition to this, each individual member of the delegation must register online (here).

Civil Society Organizations including NGOs and Industry wishing to send a delegation to CSP5 (in accordance with RoP 5) should submit a FORMAL LETTER to the President of the Conference (through the ATT Secretariat) requesting to participate and listing all delegates, indicating the full name and position of each delegate. In addition to this, each individual member of the delegation must register online (here).

Please note: Where NGOs and industry representatives are registering for the Conference with an international coalition of NGOs or an association representing industry, a single FORMAL LETTER from the international coalition or industry association listing the full name, position, and organization/company of each representative is considered to be equivalent to an individual letter from each organization/company. However, each individual representative is still required to register independently online (here).

All Notes Verbales/Formal Letters should be submitted to the ATT Secretariat by 09 August 2019 at registration@thearmstradetreaty.org

Any changes in the composition of delegations should be submitted via Note Verbale/Formal Letter to registration@thearmstradetreaty.org by 09 August 2019.

Please note that the ATT Secretariat will only send out a confirmation of accreditation as soon as the two steps in the registration process are completed, i.e.:

  • Submission of a Note Verbale by State/Formal Letter by Organization/Company
  • Individual online registration (here) by every member of the delegation

Media representatives are requested to register online (here) and submit their credentials for accreditation to the Secretariat at registration@thearmstradetreaty.org by 09 August 2019.
