SIGBI is an Organisation in Category 2 Status with the Economic and Social Council since 2013.
With this Status come many privileges but also obligations and responsibilities, one of which is that we do not use the United Nations or ECOSOC logos on our stationery, business cards, websites, meeting banners, cars, office buildings, etc.
Instead we may use the following form of words on our letterheads below the name of our organisation:
“SIGBI is an Organisation in Category 2 Status with the Economic and Social Council since 2013”
If we do use the logo there can be adverse consequences including the removal of our status. When we were not affiliated in this way the UN could ignore any transgressions, but no more.
Please bear this in mind as you all spread the word about this achievement. It is a truly marvellous thing to happen to our organisation. Your voice will be heard at the UN around the world.
If you would like to know more about what the status means for us, please do not hesitate to contact Sue Biggs, Federation Programme Director, via the SIGBI office.
