Commission on the Status of Women Fifty-sixth session (27 February - 9 March 2012)




CSW 56 Pre-Registration

DEADLINE: 17 January 2012

» Online pre-registration is now open via CSO net

Because of appreciable space limitations in the North Lawn Building where the next session will take place, it has become necessary to reduce the numbers of attendees from civil society. This number should be kept to a minimum and should not exceed 20 representatives per organization.

Please note that participants will need a secondary pass to gain access to the North Lawn Building. One or two such secondary passes per/organization will be distributed at or near the registration site. Organizations should also be aware that, in this context, entry into official meetings can still not be guaranteed to all who wish to attend.

How to pre-register

Online pre-registration started in November 2011 via CSO net at: http://esango.un.org/irene/?page=viewContent&nr=17482&type=8&section=8

Please note that an Organization’s login ID and passwords are strictly confidential.

NGOs should not give their Organization’s login ID or password to any other organization.

Instructions for changing / editing names of representatives who have been pre-registered

Names and contact details of representatives can be edited by clicking on the relevant name on the CSO net.

While logged-in to the CSO net, organizations can also cancel the pre-registration of a representative by clicking on the Remove Registration?(unlist icon) button. The name will continue to appear in the system, but the person will no longer be pre-registered.

Pre-registration questions

All pre-registration-related questions should be sent to the official CSW e-mail address. The subject line should read “CSW pre-registration”.

Confirmation of pre-registration

Once an NGO representative has been pre-registered, a confirmation letter can be downloaded and printed for her/him from the same webpage.
