State Reporting

State reporting procedure serves as a forum for constructive dialogue. It enables the Commission to monitor implementation of the Charter and identify challenges impeding the realisation of the objects of the Charter. States are able to take stock of their achievements and failures in the light of the Charter.

The Charter requires states to submit two types of report: initial report and periodic report. Initial reports are required to be submitted by states two years after ratification or accession to the Charter. Periodic reports are required to be submitted every two years after the initial report.
