  1. COVID.  All delegates attending are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with Belgian COVID-19 entry requirements: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/travels. General COVID-19 arrangements in Belgium can also be reviewed HERE (https://www.infocoronavirus.be/en/faq ).  Note that the COVID Safe Ticket (CST) – a digital QR Code to prove vaccination, testing, or recovery status – is widely used in Belgium to access hospitality venues. Many other national ‘COVID Digital Certificates’ are also recognized by the Belgian authorities and individuals who were vaccinated outside of the EU (or other recognised third party countries) can obtain a CST by following the instructions HERE (https://coronavirus.brussels/en/belgian-cst-for-foreigners ).  Given the dynamic situation and a historical precedence for COVID-19 restrictions to be changed at short notice, delegates are strongly advised to review Belgian entry requirements and general COVID-19 protective arrangements regularly prior to attending the meeting. 


  1. All questions may be addressed to the undersigned.
