If you want to join the work of DGIWG, you must contact the DGIWG head of delegation in your country. An e-mail or letter to the DGIWG secretariat will be forwarded to the appropriate person in your country. See Contact Us for the contact information. Only certain countries are members of DGIWG. To be involved directly in the work, your member body must be a participating member (P-member) of DGIWG.
