ICRC ratification kit and model legislation

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has produced a Ratification (and Accession) Toolkit for governments to support their domestic ratification processes. This kit includes a model instrument of ratification to be deposited with the UN Secretary General.

The ICRC has also produced model national legislation for Common Law states, as a tool for States in the process of developing their national legislation in accordance with Article 9 of the convention.

New Zealand has produced model national legislation for small states that do not possess cluster munitions and are not contaminated by them.
