European Social Charter

Calendar of Reporting System

Following a decision taken by the Committee of Ministers in 2006, the provisions the Charter have been divided into four thematic groups.  States present a report on the provisions relating to one of the four thematic groups on an annual basis. Consequently each provision of the Charter is reported on once every four years. As from 2014 State Parties having accepted the complaints procedure only have to provide a national report  every two years.  (more information Streamlining and improving the reporting and monitoring system of the European Social Charter Decision of the Committee of Ministers, April 2014
