Monitoring is an essential area of activity of the Council of Europe and the Saint-Denis Committee. Annual monitoring questionnaires, monitoring visits and evaluations of major sporting events - like the FIFA World Cups or the UEFA European Championships - are the three most relevant tools available to monitor the state of compliance, support States Parties in better implementing the Convention and adopt or refine standards.


Monitoring Guidelines

These Guidelines on the Monitoring of the Saint-Denis Convention, which were adopted by the Committee on 1 September 2022, set the aim, scope, activities, working methods and criteria for monitoring the implementation of the Convention by States Parties. They also describe the procedures for monitoring visits and a new action procedure that can be triggered by the Committee in case of non-compliance.
