CRPD Report Process

  • Under Article 35 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), parties to the CRPD must submit State Reports to the CRPD Committee within two years of ratification. These State Reports are to contain positive developments as well as challenges that country is having in meeting the obligations of the CRPD.
  • Additionally, Disabled Persons' Organizations (DPOs) in the country have the ability to submit alternative reports, also known as Shadow Reports, to the CRPD Committee for consideration along with the official State Report.
  • In accordance with Article 36 of the Convention, the CRPD Committee reviews these reports and issues Concluding Observations to make suggestions and recommendations to the country in order to help them meet their obligations under the CRPD.
  • After this initial State Report, parties must submit follow up State Reports to the CRPD Committee at least every four years.

Vietnam submitted its initial implementation report in 2017 to the United Nations. You can view the report here or download it as a PDF below.

Documents will be added as they are submitted and become available.
