Reporting under the OPs
Following ratification, States have the obligation to provide information on measures taken to implement the provisions of the OPs.
States are required to submit a comprehensive initial report to the Committee two years after ratification of each of the Optional Protocols. These reports should provide a comprehensive picture of the legal and practical measures taken to implement the OPs.
There is no periodic reporting under the Optional Protocols. Instead, States parties must include information on the implementation of the OPs in the periodic reports that are submitted to the Committee under article 44 (1(b)) of the Convention.
