During 2002, the Preparatory Commission for the International Criminal Court, created by the 1998 United Nations Diplomatic Conference of Plenipotentiaries on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court (ICC) to make arrangements for the coming into operation of the Court, completed its mandate with the holding of its ninth and tenth sessions. It transmitted to the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court a report covering its work from 1999 to 2002 and containing its recommendations. The Rome Statute of ICC entered into force on 1 July, following the deposit of the sixtieth instrument of ratification with the Secretary-General on 11 April. In September, the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute held its first session, at which it adopted a number of instruments, resolutions and decisions. The International Law Commission continued its examination of topics suitable for the progressive development and codification of international law, provisionally adopting a number of completed draft guidelines on reservations to treaties and draft articles on diplomatic protection. The Ad Hoc Committee on the convention for the suppression of nuclear terrorism continued to elaborate a comprehensive convention on international terrorism and to resolve outstanding issues related to the preparation of a draft international convention for the suppression of acts of nuclear terrorism. The Ad Hoc Committee on the Scope of Legal Protection under the 1994 Convention on the Safety of United Nations and Associated Personnel held its first session in 2002 to review measures recommended by the Secretary-General to strengthen the protective legal regime for UN and associated personnel.
