Observers to the Hallmarking Convention

Any State interested in the activities of the Hallmarking Convention and fulfilling the requirements of Article 12 may attend four meetings of the Standing Committee without any obligation. Such States do not have any status under the Convention.

Any State, which is interested to join the Hallmarking Convention, must first fill in an Application Form and Questionnaire (see Compilation of Acts), which is then assessed. A Delegation, appointed by the Standing Committee, will then carry out an inspection in order to ensure that the Applicant State can apply the provisions of the Convention. Based on the Delegation’s report, the Standing Committee will then decide whether to recommend to all Contracting States whether to invite the Applicant State to join the Convention. Once officially invited, the Applicant State must ratify the Convention.

During the entire accession process, the Applicant State which enjoys an Observer Status, must pay an annual observer fee.
