Together with representatives of Council of Europe member states, steering committees benefit from the participation of other organisations as observers, including civil society and representatives of business, technical, professional and academic communities (without the right to vote and without defrayal of expenses).

Criteria for granting observer status to the steering committee for organisations (associations, foundations, NGOs) include:

  • a broad experience in the areas of competence of the CDCCP; 
  • an ability to make an effective and high quality contribution to its activities;
  • representation at a Europe-wide level and, where relevant, at a broader level.

The following are currently observers to the CDCPP:
