At its forty-eighth session (2015) the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) requested its Secretariat to convene a colloquium on legal issues related to identity management and trust services with a view to compiling information on the scope and methodology of future work in that area (see Official Records of the General Assembly, Seventieth Session, Supplement No. 17 (A/70/17), para. 358). In line with that request, a colloquium will take place on 21 and 22 April 2016 at the Vienna International Centre. Although the meeting will be conducted on an informal basis, interpretation in the six official languages of the United Nations will be available.
