Accreditation is required in order to attend the WSIS Forum 2015.
Accreditation is a continuous process. An organization that was
granted accreditation to attend the WSIS+10 High-Level Event
in 2014 will normally be entitled to attend this year’s Forum,
under the condition that the status of the entity and/or
participant has not changed since the last accreditation. In any
case, ITU reserves the right to request new documents of
credentials if it deems necessary.
The following entities will be automatically
accredited (under condition that the link between the
participant and the entity is obvious):
- a Member State of the United Nations or of one of its
- the European Union;
- any entity, intergovernmental organization and other
entities that have received a standing invitation from the
UN General Assembly to participate in the capacity of
observers in the sessions and work of all international
conferences convened under the UNGA auspices;
- the Specialized Agencies, the IAEA, the WTO, the OPCW and
- other intergovernmental organizations invited by the ITU
- interested organs of the United Nations;
- associate members of UN Regional Commissions;
- ITU Sector Members, Associates and Academia;
- non-governmental organizations, civil society and
business sector entities that have physically attended WSIS+10
High-Level Event in 2014 (under condition that their status
has not evolved since their last accreditation).
Other non-governmental organizations, civil society, and business sector
entities not yet accredited or whose status has changed,
who wish to attend the WSIS Forum 2015 and contribute, need to
fill out this
form with the required information and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The latest deadline for submitting the
accreditation application is two weeks before the event (i.e. 11 May);
participants who need a visa are strongly recommended to
complete the accreditation procedures early enough so to
have sufficient remaining time to organize their visa process (at least four
Registration process for onsite participation
Please make sure you have read the accreditation process before registering.
Although individual registration remains possible, registration for
entities will be facilitated if done by a designated focal point
(DFP) (one per entity). Therefore, we strongly encourage accredited entities
to designate a DFP who will be responsible for handling registration of
participants via username and password. Your organization needs to have been
duly accredited before a Focal Point may be designated. Also, participants
registered via a DFP have to be part of the entity or need to have a strong link
to the entity represented. Further credentials for an applicant may be requested
if the WSIS team deems necessary.
If you were already an accredited DFP last year: you should
normally have received an e-letter indicating your username & password to be
used in order to register your team.
If you were a DFP last year, or if you are part of the ITU Membership
(ITU Administration Member States, Sector Member, Associate, or Academia) and
have not yet received your username & password this year,
or if the DFP details needs to be updated, then kindly contact us at email@example.com.
Already Designated Focal Points: Click link below to access the
online registration form for registering your delegation (Accessible
only via the username & password you have received as a DFP):
It is also possible to register without going through a DFP at the following link:
However, please note that priority will be given to
those registered through their DFP. Also please note that if you were not
recently accredited to an ITU WSIS event, if you are not part of the entities
mentioned under a. to i., or if you are not registered through a DFP, you will
first be required to complete the
questionnaire before your accreditation can be processed.
Confirmation of registration: each accredited participant will
receive an e-confirmation to the email address provided in the registration form.
The e-confirmation will be the sole document provided for visa support.
