Decision No. 2012/18 - Human Rights Screening of United Nations Personnel
This policy was approved by the Secretary-General's Policy Committee in Decision 2012/18 on 11 December 2012. The policy outlines the principles and methodology by which the United Nations will pursue human rights screening of personnel. It outlines processes by which (i) Member States who nominate or provide personnel to serve with the United Nations are requested to screen their personnel and to certify that they have not committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law; (ii) individuals who seek to serve with the United Nations are requested to attest that they have not committed, or are alleged to have committed, criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law and, where necessary, to provide relevant information; and (iii) the United Nations Secretariat will establish an information exchange mechanism, such as a focal point network, and procedures to support the exchange of information on prior human rights conduct of candidates/nominees for the purpose of screening.
