State report: The State Party is required to submit an initial report two years after entry into force of the CRPD for that country. After this, States must submit reports every four years. Reports should provide information on the measures adopted to follow-up on the conclusions and recommendations made by the Committee.
The State Party report is composed of two documents; the common core document and a treaty-specific document. The common core document is a 60-80 page report that contains information of a general and factual nature on the implementation of all the human rights treaties which a State has ratified. The common core document is therefore not disability-specific.
The treaty-specific document is a maximum of 60 page report and should contain specific information on the implementation in law and in practice of the articles of the CRPD. The report should provide detailed information on substantive measures taken and progress achieved and an article-by-article analysis.
