Compliance Committee

The Compliance Committee is a subsidiary body of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention that was established in 2023 by decision SC-11/19.

The Committee has a double mandate to:

  • Consider submissions and questions relating to Parties’ compliance relating to individual Parties;
  • Examine systemic issues of general compliance and implementation.

At its twelfth meeting, the Conference of the Parties is to elect the first fifteen members of the Committee, which are to be experts nominated by Parties and elected on the basis of equitable geographical representation of the five regional groups of the United Nations, with due consideration to gender balance.

The Committee’s officers – a Chair, Vice-Chair and a Rapporteur – are elected by its members.
