Procedures of Implementation Committee


Committee at Palais des Nations, Geneva, November 2012 (from left: Mr. Zaharia, Ms. Papajová Majeská, Ms. Dimitrova, Ms. Plesco, Ms. Grigoryan, Mr. Brun, Ms. Hernando, Ms. Kolar-Planinsic (Chair), Ms. Tea Aulavuo (Secretary), Ms. Babayeva, Mr. Prieur and Mr. Jendroska).

The Implementation Committee's objective is to review compliance by the Parties with their obligations under the Convention and (from 2011) the Protocol with a view to assisting them fully to meet their commitments.

The Committee was established by the Meeting of the Parties in February 2001 (decision II/4 of the second Meeting of the Parties, revised as decision III/2, which provides the structure and functions of the Implementation Committee and procedures for review of compliance). The Committee comprises eight members, nominated by Parties that are, in turn, elected by the Meeting of the Parties. Alternates are elected for Protocol matters.

Parties are invited to make submissions if they have concerns about their own or another Party's compliance with obligations under the Convention.

Members of the public, NGOs and others: Do you have concerns about the application of the Convention?

If so, use this form to provide information to the Implementation Committee through the secretariat (not for use by Parties to the Convention)
