Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Group of the Conference of the Parties, established in accordance with resolution 9/1

In resolution 9/1, the Conference of the Parties to UNTOC requested UNODC to convene, within existing resources, at least one meeting of an open-ended intergovernmental expert group for the purpose of finalizing and harmonizing, as necessary, the self-assessment questionnaires and preparing the guidelines for conducting the country reviews and a blueprint for the lists of observations.

The Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Group (IEG) of the Conference of the Parties, established in accordance with resolution 9/1 was held from 9 to 11 October 2019 in Vienna, Austria. The open-ended intergovernmental meeting finalized the guidelines for conducting the country reviews and blueprints for the lists of observations and the summaries as well as the self-assessment questionnaire for the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, pending the harmonization of the questionnaires for UNTOC and its Protocols. Both documents will be submitted to the Conference of the Parties to UNTOC for its consideration at its tenth session (12-16 October 2020). Moreover, the open-ended intergovernmental meeting discussed in detail the draft for the self-assessment questionnaire for the Protocol on Trafficking in Persons.

The report of the first meeting of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Group of the Conference of the Parties will be made available in due course at the meeting's website.
