The UNCITRAL Working Group III (ISDS Reform) Informal Meeting on Appellate mechanism (virtual) 2-3 March 2022


2-3 March 2022, 1 to 3 pm (Vienna, Austria time)

The UNCITRAL Secretariat is organizing a two-day informal meeting on the possible establishment of an appellate mechanism. The purpose of the meeting is to consider informally the draft document prepared by the Secretariat on the appellate mechanism.

Topics for consideration include:

  • Draft provisions on the functioning of an appellate mechanism; and
  • The options for establishing an appellate mechanism

The purpose of informal meetings generally is to explore topics in detail in order to support delegations in their preparation for the next Working Group meetings at which these topics will be considered and make such discussions more efficient. In addition, informal meetings can be helpful in providing technical support to the Secretariat tasked with the preparation of revised versions of the working papers to be formally presented to the Working Group. No decisions will be taken at these meetings.
