Abstract: We failed to detect a counterpart source to the short/hard GRB 020531, which was discovered by the HETE satellite. We present observations in the X-rays made with Chandra in 2 epochs. We also summarize observations made in the optical with the Subaru telescope, with Magellan, and with 2 orbits of Hubble STIS. The X-ray afterglow flux must have been fainter than 2 × 10-15 erg cm-2 s-1 5.27 days after the GRB. The source must have faded faster than t-2.1 in the optical.
