Simplified reporting procedure

In September 2013, during its 10th session, the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities adopted a simplified reporting procedure, for periodic reports which are due in 2014 and beyond. According to this procedure, the Committee prepares and adopts lists of issues to be transmitted to States parties, the replies of the State party to this list of issues are deemed to constitute the State party’s report. This procedure aims to facilitate the States parties reporting process; strengthen the States parties capacity to fulfil their obligations in a timely and effective manner; provide the Committee with more targeted periodic reports; improve the effectiveness of the treaty monitoring system by reducing the need to request supplementary information before considering a report; and to allow the Committee to plan in advance its work.
