Cooperation with other NHRIs
The Commission became a full voting member of the ICC (the international network of NHRIs) in 2009 when we were granted our A status accreditation. We share the UK seat on the ICC with the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission and Scottish Human Rights Commission. We are active members of the European Group of NHRIs and have been asked to chair the Eurogroup’s Working Group on CRPD. We will be looking at implementation of the Convention in Europe and sharing best practice among the participant NHRIs.
