GUIDANCE TO INTERNATIONAL, REGIONAL AND SUB-REGIONAL ORGANISATIONS ON THE PREPARATION OF SUMMARIES OF THEIR ACTIVITIES

The Security Council, in the statement of its President of 17 December 2002 (S/PRST/2002/38) requested the CTC to deepen its contacts with international, regional and sub-regional organisations, with the aim of improving the flow of information on experiences, standards and best practice on counter-terrorism.

In this regard, the Chairman of the CTC wrote to the Heads of such organisations on 20 December, inviting them to contribute a short summary of the activities and experiences of their organisation in the area of counter-terrorism, and an indication of plans for further work. The CTC will compile the summaries submitted by organisations into a UN document to be circulated as background in advance of the 6 March Special Meeting with representatives of these organisations.

For ease of reference, the CTC requested that the information provided should be set out according to the three broad areas of action required of States to implement 1373 (Stages A, B and C defined below), and should be limited to 500 words.

To make the task of monitoring action on counter-terrorism and the implementation of 1373 more manageable the CTC identified three broad areas or stages of action to be taken by States, and are set out below. In preparing their summaries, organisations might wish to draw on the following guidance points.
