Draft AC8 Agenda

A draft agenda for the 8th Meeting of the Advisory Committee (AC8) is now available from the ACAP Secretariat.  In accordance with Rule 17(4) it is requested that Parties advise the Secretariat by 15 June 2014 of any new items they would like to have added to the agenda.  Draft agendas for the preceding Working Group meetings are also available for the information of delegates attending those meetings, as well as a document list for AC8.

Document Templates

Templates (click here) for meeting documents are available to assist in the preparation of papers for AC8 and Working Group meetings.  It would be appreciated if these templates could be used when submitting documents to the Secretariat.

In order to contain translation costs and facilitate the reading of documents in non-native languages, it would be appreciated if the length of meeting documents could be kept to a minimum.  In the case of working documents, please consider submitting supporting information in an information paper, rather than in the body of the document itself.

Submission of Meeting Documents

A reminder that meeting documents requiring translation (working documents) are to be submitted to the Secretariat no later than 15 July 2014 in order that they may be distributed in the three official languages 30 days in advance of the meeting.  All other AC8 meeting documents and Working Group documents must be submitted by 1 August 2014.  Meeting documents will not be accepted after these dates.

Meeting Registration

Parties, Non-Party Range States and Observers are reminded that details of their representatives must be provided to the Secretariat prior to the meeting (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
