Reporting instrument

In November 2010, at its fourth session, the COP decided to adopt a single reporting instrument for Parties' biennial reports that has been amended a few times afterwards.

The reporting instrument consists of a core questionnaire mandatory for all Parties and the “additional questions on the use of implementation guidelines adopted by the Conference of the Parties”, which aims to facilitate voluntary submission of such information by the Parties.




Parties are requested to complete the core questionnaire online. The questionnaire can be accessed through a link sent by e-mail to the WHO FCTC technical focal point of the respective country. For more information please refer to Questions and answers.
