NGO’s are allocated a total of 20 minutes to take the floor and make a Statement. Statements are usually restricted to a maximum of 2 minutes. But, time permitting, can be longer.
During this period, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations with ECOSOC Status who are acredited to that session of the Human Rights Council can make comments.
Those without ECOSOC Status are unable to attend or make comments.
