Official Observers

Participants that are not members of the Participants Committee (PC) may attend the PC meetings as observers. The following Official Observers are invited to attend the meetings of the Participants Committee. They may express their views on issues under discussion but have no voting rights to any decisions of the Participants Committee. The respective groups determine a process for selecting their representatives for participating in the meetings as the Official Observers.

Observers are self-selected by their respective regional constituencies to represent them at FCPF meetings and related proceedings. Constituencies are encouraged to reach out to their respective representative, who is also responsible for reporting back on a regular basis. A complete Observers list with contact information is found below.
