About IMOs: An IYPT Member Organization is a legal entity which is officially recognized by the IYPT to represent the IYPT-related interests of a country. In particular, IMOs determine the team and the IOC representative for their country at their discretion. For the selection of the team, an IMO has to setup an appropriate selection procedure which gives all interested students from the respective country a fair chance to compete for a seat in the country’s team.

IMOs gain their status by vote of the IOC, after a motion of the IMO candidate. If the country in question already has an IOC representative, said representative must approve this motion. Applications for IMO status can only be made by someone who has previously participated in an IYPT either as an observer, team member, team leader, or juror. This condition is fulfilled even if the person in question represented a different country at that time.

An IMO loses its right to send an IOC representative after not sending a team to the IYPT in two subsequent years. Furthermore, in this case other organizations of the country in question may apply for IMO status.

After applying for IMO status, an IMO candidate may nominate a team for the IYPT until the IOC decides about their application at the following IOC meeting.

IMO status is usually granted for a period of 5 years.
