NGOs that are accredited to and in good standing with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) may designate representatives to attend the annual sessions of the CSW. The number of representatives who can attend open official meetings can be contingent on the availability of space.

The format, and arrangements for physical participation, in the sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women remain under review, including participation of representatives from organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC, due to anticipated continued implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Updates will be provided as soon as they become available.

Representatives of organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC are invited to subscribe to the CSW65 email update list for the latest updates and developments concerning preparatory processes and attendance at the Commission.

The United Nations does not charge fees for participation in the Commission on the Status of Women sessions. The United Nations will not pay for any expenses in connection with the participation of NGO representatives in the sessions of CSW. Such arrangements and costs are the exclusive responsibility of participants.
