IARC Monographs - Upcoming Meetings

Update to the Preamble - Request for Observer Status

Advisory Group to Recommend an Update to the Preamble
Lyon, France
12-14 November 2018

Closing date: 12 June 2018

In the interest of transparency, Observers with relevant scientific credentials are welcome to attend IARC Monographs meetings. Observers are invited to observe the meeting and should not attempt to influence it. This includes a requirement not to contact participants before the meeting or to lobby them at any time. In requesting Observer status, it is understood that you agree to respect the Guidelines for Observers at IARC Monographs Meetings.

Requests for Observer status should include:

  1. Curriculum vitae or résumé of the proposed Observer.
  2. Name and description of the sponsoring organization (Observers pay their own travel, hotel, and other expenses).
  3. WHO Declaration of Interests to disclose associations with parties that have an interest in any agent that may be reviewed by the IARC Monographs programme.
  4. Confidentiality Undertaking.

Please send your nominations before the closing date by e-mail (preamble@iarc.fr) or fax (+33-472.73.83.19).

IARC will select Observers with attention to achieving a balance of Observers from constituencies with differing perspectives. To give all parties an opportunity to nominate Observers, IARC will select Observers after the closing date and send their invitations approximately 1 month later. IARC may grant later requests if space is available and if it would improve the diversity or balance among Observers.

Thank you for your interest in the IARC Monographs.

Kurt Straif, Head of the IARC Monographs programme
