The African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC) holds Ordinary Session twice a year: March or April and November. Ordinary Session is the venue where States parties reports, CSOs complementary reports, communications, request for investigation and other requests submitted before the Committee are being examined. Some activities during the sessions are open while others are restricted.
However, articles 35, 36 and 37 of the Rules of Procedure state that summary records of public meetings of the Committee shall be written, recorded and made available for general distribution, unless the Committee decides otherwise.
The Secretariat, as the the custodian of the archives of the Committee had endeavoured to keep alive the memory of this entity since its inception.
