Council of Europe renews Alzheimer Europe collective complaints registration

31/05/2022

Alzheimer Europe has had its request for renewal of its registration on the list of International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) entitled to lodge complaints under the collective complaints procedure of the European Social Charter (ESC) approved by the 144th meeting of the Governmental Committee. INGOs holding participatory status with the Council of Europe are entitled to lodge collective complaints, allowing them to directly apply to the European Committee of Social Rights for rulings on possible non-implementation of the European Social Charter in the countries concerned (i.e. those States which have accepted its provisions and the complaints procedure). Alzheimer Europe’s renewed registration will be valid for the period from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2026.
