Following official advice from local authorities in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, the BIS has decided as a precautionary measure to cancel most physical meetings or replace them with virtual meetings. If you are scheduled to attend meetings in any of our locations, please contact your BIS meeting organiser for further information. Measures are also in place to reduce staffing at most of our offices, with a majority of the staff working from home. Please check with your BIS contact person before you visit any of our offices.

The measures taken apply to the BIS and its hosted institutions. They are in place to safeguard the well-being of staff, international visitors and the local community.

The BIS archives remain closed, but remote consultation is possible.
