Recommendations of the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe

Apart from the Conventions, Council of Europe structures (in this case, the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly) can also issue recommendations. These are not legally-binding documents but they nevertheless represent important standard setting documents. In addition to this, recommendations or codes of good practice in various fields can be also adopted by some other structures (i.e. Lisbon Recognition Convention Committee etc.)
