Third session of the open-ended intergovernmental working group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights Accreditation Information: Side Event Access


If you are accredited to participate in the 3rd session of the OEIGWG or if you have access to the public gallery, then you will be able to access all public side events without having to do any further action.  This section applies only to those who will be attending side events and not the OEIGWG session.

Side event organizers may invite guests to attend their side event even if the guests are not otherwise accredited to attend the OEIGWG session.  Such guests must request accreditation following the procedure outlined below.

Requesting Access

All accreditation requests must be made online through UNOG’s Indico system.

Please create an Indico account or log in to an existing one, and then proceed to the registration form for side events during the 3rd session of the OEIGWG.

In addition to filling in the required information on the registration form, invited guests are kindly asked to attach a scanned letter from the side event organizer indicating that the guest has been invited.  This letter should clearly indicate the side event the guest will be attending.

This letter should be uploaded in the section entitled “Mandatory documents for access to side events.”

If you have any questions regarding the Indico registration system, please consult the Indico guide for conference participants, consult the Indico FAQ, or send specific questions to the OEIGWG Secretariat at

Gaining Access to UNOG

If your request has been approved, you must collect a security badge for the session at the Pregny Gate of the Palais des Nations, located at 8-14 Avenue de la Paix, 1211 Geneva 10. The office is open on working days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  To collect the badge, you must present:
