The Economic and Social Council, at its Organizational Session of May 2001, decided to grant Special consultative status to Euro-Mediterranean Council for Burns and Fire Disasters - WHO Collaborating Centre.( MBC ).
The MBC designated official representatives to the United Nations - to the United Nations Headquarters in New York and the United Nations offices in Geneva and Vienna. The regular presence of MBC will implement effectively and fruitfully the provision for this consultative relationship.
The United Nations issues a calendar of meetings and conferences which can be obtained by the representatives of MBC at the United Nations sites. Every year, the MBC will receive from this office the "Calendar of United Nations meetings open to participation by or of special interest to NGOs in consultative status".
The Euro-Mediterranean Council for Burns and Fire Disasters can indicate its status with the United Nations on his letterhead, using the following wording: "NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations".
The latest copy of the calendar and other NGO-related information can also be found on the NGO Section in the United Nations Site.
