Intersessional Process of the Standing Committee

Given that SC58 has been postponed for four months to the new dates noted above, the Standing Committee has identified a number of time-sensitive issues to be addressed intersessionally. Information on these issues and the process to address them was shared with all Contracting Parties through Diplomatic Note 2020/6 on 19 May 2020.
