The procedure aims at guaranteeing the election of high-calibre independent experts among nationals of the Parties. When adopting the election procedure, the Committee of Ministers invited the States Parties to the Istanbul Convention to submit to the Secretary General of the Council of Europe nominations for GREVIO candidates by 2 March 2015. The Committee of the Parties elected the first ten GREVIO members at its first meeting on 4 May 2015. The election procedure for the remaining five seats will begin following the 25th ratification of the Convention.
