International Union of Bilateral Chambers of Commerce and Industry has been accepted in the DESA Civil Society System
The International Union of Bilateral Chambers of Commerce and Industry (IUBCCI) has been accepted as registered non-governmental organization in the Integrated Civil Society Organization (iCSO) System developed by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations (DESA), which facilitates interactions between civil society organizations and DESA.
The system provides online registration of general profiles for civil society organizations, facilitates the application procedure for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and assists accredited NGOs in submitting quadrennial reports and in designating representatives to the United Nations.
The portal gives users the opportunity to publish news and to engage and moderate discussion forums. It facilitates online pre-registration to UN conferences open for civil society participation and allows for submission of NGO statements to the Economic and Social Council.
The portal can be found at http://esango.un.org/civilsociety/login.do.
