SUMMARY
Committee initiative (EIA/IC/CI/2) was opened at the Committee's 17th session further to specific compliance issue EIA/IC/SCI/2/10 with regard to Azerbaijan's obligations under the Convention concerning its national legislation. The Committee initiative on Azerbaijan was prompted by the country’s responses to the questionnaire on implementation of the Convention in the period 2006-2009, indicating that it lacked national legislation on the application of the Convention, and by the request from Azerbaijan for technical assistance from the Committee in that regard.
