Ombudsman renews accreditation as National Human Rights Institution

On 7 June, the Ombudsman obtained the renewal of its accreditation as a National Human Rights Institution (NHRI), maintaining the maximum ‘A’ status it has held since 1999.

The demanding accreditation process takes place periodically under the auspices of the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI), in order to assess and certify the degree of compliance of NHRIs with the Paris Principles.

Accreditation by GANHRI gives NHRIs special rights to participate in international and regional organisations and is encouraged by the United Nations.
