Implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women is monitored by the CEDAW Committee, a body of independent experts on women's rights from around the world. As a party to the treaty Ireland is obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights of the Convention are implemented.

In March 2016, the CEDAW Committee sent Ireland a list of issues and questions prior to reporting, under the simplified reporting procedure for human rights treaty bodies adopted by resolution of the General Assembly in 2014. Ireland’s replies to this list will constitute the combined 6th and 7th periodic reports under the Convention. Consultations with civil society on preparation of this report will commence shortly, with a view to submitting the report by the deadline of 12 September 2016.
