The TIR Executive Board (TIRExB), a subsidiary body of the TIR Administrative Committee (AC.2), supervises and provides support in the application of the TIR procedure at the national and international level. It is composed of 9 members, each from a different Contracting Party to the TIR Convention, who are elected for a two year term of office.
At its fifty-seventh session (Geneva, 6 February 2014), the Committee was informed of the resignation of two members of the Board, viz, Mrs. Anna Dubielak (Poland) and Mr. Konstantin Syaskov (Russian Federation). In line with the mandate given by AC.2, the UNECE secretariat is soliciting herewith candidates willing to stand for election for the two vacant seats in the TIRExB (See ECE/TRANS/WP.30/AC.2/117, paras 31-35). The election will take place on Thursday, 12 June 2014, in the course of the fifty-eighth session of AC.2, in accordance with the established procedure (TRANS/WP.30/AC.2/59, paras. 24-27).
