The Standing Committee has a range of tools to monitor the implementation of the Convention at each of its meetings, including by reviewing reports, processing case-files and following-up on the implementation of previous recommendations.

All aspects of the monitoring system are fully accessible to not only national authorities from Parties, but also from observer States to the Convention and, most importantly to civil society. All reports under the different reporting systems are publicly accessible through the Convention’s website, as are other documents submitted to the Standing Committee’s annual meetings.
