Reporting Schedule

The CEDAW Committee meets in Geneva, Switzerland three times a year for three weeks in January/February, June/July and October/November to consider reports of States parties and to deliberate on organisational and other matters. Its regular sessions are preceded by the pre-sessional meetings where a smaller group of experts deliberate on the reports and prepare the questions to be posed to the representatives of reporting States parties. From July 1998, the CEDAW Committee began the practice of meeting with NGOs to hear their concerns and to gather inputs for the consideration of government reports.

Upon completion of a review of a State party report, the CEDAW Committee will come up with a set of recommendations called the Concluding Observations.
