National Reports of the 1970 Convention

In accordance with Article 16 of the 1970 Convention, States Parties shall, on dates determined by the General Conference of UNESCO, submit a report to UNESCO on the legislative and administrative provisions they have adopted and other actions taken in implementing the Convention, as well as progress made and obstacles encountered. In October 2003, Resolution 32C/38 of the 32nd session of the General Conference of UNESCO fixed the periodicity of the reports at four years.

In addition, the Operational Guidelines concerning the implementation of the 1970 Convention recall the binding nature for States Parties to present these periodic reports. These guidelines emphasize that the monitoring, control and exchange of information that these reports allow, play an important role in the implementation of the 1970 Convention.
