Briefing on the new Simplified Reporting Procedure

Author: Natalie Williams and Giana Rosa Date: July 2020

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (UN Committee) will next examine the UK in 2022. The UN Committee will assess how well the UK is implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Its last review of the UK was in 2016.

The next review will be done under the new Simplified Reporting Procedure (SRP) meaning it will be slightly different to previous examinations.New SRP Cycle Infographic

Our new briefing provides information on the new process, what it entails and how civil society organisations can get involved.


The examination presents a key opportunity for civil society to raise important issues of concern affecting children’s rights with the UK Government and the UN Committee and to highlight where action is needed, as well as outline where progress has been made. The infographic below sets out the timetable for the next examination.

We submitted the civil society submission to inform the LOIPR in December 2020.
