Declaration of Interests forms (DoI)

From its first session, the Conference of the Parties has been addressing the aggressive and/or misleading tactics of the tobacco industry that undermine tobacco-control efforts at the global, regional and national levels by adopting a series of measures to prevent further interference by tobacco industry in public health policies, to safeguard the integrity of governance of the WHO FCTC.

At its eighth session, in October 2018, the COP decided to require Parties, when designating their representatives to the sessions of the Conference of the Parties, its subsidiary bodies or any other bodies established pursuant to the Conference of the Parties, to indicate that they have observed Article 5.3 of the Framework Convention and have been mindful of the recommendations 4.9 and 8.3 of the Guidelines not to nominate delegates from the tobacco industry (including state-owned tobacco industry) or any entity working to further its interests to attend meetings of the treaty bodies.

In addition, and in accordance with their internal procedures and domestic legislation, Parties and States that are not Parties to the WHO FCTC may use the declaration-of-interest form as part of the process.

In addition, it was adopted that intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations are required to fill in a Declaration of Interest form, as well as for the members of the media and the public when submitting their accreditation to the meetings.

All the Declaration of interest forms are available below for use.
