New York | DGACM 

To achieve full parity among the languages of the United Nations as mandated by the General Assembly in its successive resolutions on multilingualism - including 71/328 of 11 September 2017 - DGACM is pleased to announce that the eSubscription service to UN documents has expanded from one to all six official languages.

Since its inception in 2011, the portal has enabled subscribers, including UN staff, Member States, and the public, to automatically receive UN documents, as they become available. By widely disseminating United Nations parliamentary documents, the portal has contributed to bringing the UN closer to both its membership and to the people it serves. The portal has also had a positive impact on the UN’s environmental footprint - since it has been launched, more and more Permanent Missions in the four largest duty stations no longer request hard copies of documents.

Over the past few years, the number of subscribers has increased exponentially and has reached more than 66,500. In 2011, in recognition of its invaluable contribution to enlightening the public on the work of the UN, the service received the UN 21 Award in the “client orientation” category.

In addition to expanding the service to all six languages, a new user interface has been introduced, which is aligned with the branding and accessibility standards for United Nations websites.
