The Drafting Group C (GT-GDR-C) was tasked to prepare:

  • a draft report on interim measures under Rule 39 of the Rules of Court (see paragraph 12.e) of the Brighton Declaration); Interim measures are urgent measures which, according to the Court’s well-established practice, apply only where there is an imminent risk of irreparable harm. Such measures are decided in connection with proceedings before the Court without prejudging any subsequent decisions on the admissibility or merits of the case in question;
  •  a draft report on the advisability and modalities of a “representative application procedure” (see paragraph 20.d) of the Brighton Declaration). The DH-GDR examined the two draft reports at in February 2013 and transmitted them to the CDDH. One month later they were transmitted to the Committee of Ministers.


At their 1169th meeting (30 April 2013), the Ministers’ Deputies:

  • took note of the report on interim measures and invited the Court and member States to consider the proposals addressed to them and to inform the Committee of their response to these by 15 March 2014;
  • endorsed the CDDH’s conclusions as to the inadvisability to introduce a “representative application procedure”.
