Invitation from Peter Mason, CIML President

Peter Mason

Dear Colleagues,

The CIML will hold its 52nd meeting in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, from Tuesday 10 October (morning) to Thursday 12 October 2017 (morning). It will be preceded by an OIML Seminar on the OIML-CS on Monday, 9 October 2017 (09:00 – 15:30).

An RLMO Round Table will be organized on Monday, 9 October in the afternoon after the OIML Seminar.

We invite you to be ready to take the floor during the CIML meeting.

As you know, it is essential that the Committee has sufficient voting Members for a quorum. Therefore:

  • if you are personally unable to attend this meeting and would like to designate someone from your government or administration to represent you and vote on your behalf, please advise Mr. Stephen Patoray, BIML Director, of the name of that person;
  • if you anticipate that you or the person that you have designated to represent you may be absent during any of the meeting sessions, please give a proxy to another CIML Member when registering online.

Please note that if someone from your government or administration is representing you, this person may not receive proxies from other CIML Members.

The BIML has prepared this website for the Cartagena de Indias meetings which provides detailed information. Registration for attendance will be online via this website. The deadline for registering is 1 July 2017; if you are unable to register via the website, please contact Mrs. Patricia Saint-Germain (Administrator, Members) at the BIML and alternative arrangements will be made.

Lastly, obtaining a visa may be a lengthy process so we urge you to make your application as soon as possible.

Looking forward to seeing you again in Cartagena de Indias,


Yours faithfully,



Peter Mason
CIML President
