Key correspondence

New items of significant correspondence will be accessible from this page prior to each OSCAR meeting. Members can use this page to access the correspondence that will be considered at each meeting as we are no longer intending to distribute hard copies of correspondence at meetings as you will have access to electronic versions for your internal use, distribution and printing if required.

Older correspondence will also be accessible here.

Minor items, or items of internal correspondence (eg between Executive members or between OSCAR and its member organisations and individuals) are not listed here unless of special significance.
