    In view of the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Belgian government has announced a series of strict measures to combat the alarming rates of infection in the country (more information on the measures in force in Belgium is available via the following link: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/).

    Subject to the evolution of the pandemic in Belgium and in accordance with the president's decision of 9 February 2021 (SG.A)(2020)D/311), Committee meetings can be held in a hybrid format as of 16 January 2021. However, given recent public health developments, participants are strongly encouraged to follow the meetings remotely.

    Participants invited to a hybrid meeting and who plan to attend the meeting in person should inform the meeting organiser that they will be physically present at the meeting at least one calendar week before the date of the meeting. Failure to comply with this provision shall result in members being denied access to the meeting room.

    The Group III meeting on 24 February 2021 will therefore be held in a Hybrid format.

    All the technical details of the organisation of the Interactio video conference will be sent to you in a separate message.

    In accordance with the Bureau decision of 28 October 2020 amending the decision on the reimbursement of expenses and allowances, beneficiaries who have been invited to a duly authorised meeting and who decide to participate remotely shall be entitled to a daily allowance if they are unable to attend the meeting in person as a result of COVID-19 national travel restrictions or other related measures, provided that their name is included on the attendance list that is drawn up on the day of the meeting by the secretariat. For any questions regarding reimbursements, please contact the Members' Working Conditions Unit.

    Members unable to attend the meeting are asked to give advance notice to secretdegroupeiii@eesc.europa.eu.
