Associate Members may be invited by the Conference to attend
any Meeting of a Conference, the Board of Governors or Con-
sultative Meetings and to participate in their deliberations without
the right to vote. They are, however, fully entitled to benefit from
all general facilities of the Secretariat, including its publications
and library, as any Full Member.
Whenever the words “Members” or “Member Countries” occur
in this Statute, they mean a Full Member of the Organization,
unless the context demonstrates to the contrary.
Article 8

arising out of its membership.
In the event of any country having ceased to be a Member of
the Organization, its readmission to membership shall be made
in accordance with Article 7, paragraph C.
