Any third party or entity with the intention of acceding to the Agreement and/or with a direct interest in the activities of the International Olive Council may, upon its own initiative or upon the invitation of the Council of Members and with its prior consent, attend all or part of a given session or sessions of the Council of Members as an observer.

Observers do not hold Member status and do not have decision-making powers or voting rights.

The Council of Members has taken a further step forward in strengthening its relationship with the private sector by authorising the chair of the IOC Advisory Committee on Olive Oil and Table Olives to attend sessions.
