The 2016 biennial Commission meeting of the IWC will be held at the Grand Hotel Bernardin, Portoroz, Slovenia.
The IWC welcomes media interest. An accreditation process is in operation for media wishing to attend Commission plenary meetings.
Accreditation is for the duration of one meeting although every effort will be made to streamline the re-accreditation process for those attending more than one meeting.
If you would like to apply for media accreditation please complete the registration process here.
If you have not previously obtained media accreditation for an IWC Commission meeting, we will not be able to be accept your meeting registration until you have also provided:

If you have not obtained accreditation and registered for the meeting before arriving at the venue, your entry will be delayed and we may be forced to refuse accreditation if paperwork is incomplete or further enquiries are necessary and cannot be completed quickly.
Media accreditation will not be accorded to the information outlets of non-governmental organisations, newsletters, internal publications, federations or associations.
Double accreditation will not be possible (e.g. media + NGO)
The IWC Secretariat reserves the right to withdraw accreditation in the event that the Code of Conduct for IWC meetings is considered to have been breached.
The decision of the IWC Secretary is final.
