Minor Treaty Actions

Minor Treaty Actions (Category 3 treaty actions) are generally technical amendments to existing treaties that do not significantly affect the national interest.

Minor Treaty Actions are presented to the Committee with an explanatory statement and are published on the Committee’s website unless a request for confidentiality is received and agreed to by the Committee. The Committee can choose to formally inquire into these treaty actions or accept them without a formal inquiry. Once considered they are incorporated into a report of the Committee at the next opportunity.
