Electronic system
Inscriptions for all interactive dialogues (“IDs”) and panel discussions will be done through the electronic
system in Room XX. Delegates representing States, United Nations agencies and international and regional
organizations can inscribe on the list of speakers by pressing the microphone button at their desk, when the
timer is displayed on the screen. For States Members of the Council, only the microphone with the red sticker
can be used to inscribe on the list. This does not apply to NGOs and NHRIs (see below). The lists of speakers
for all IDs and panel discussions close 15 minutes after the corresponding dialogue or discussion has started;
delegations may still inscribe at the list of speakers desk until that moment.
Schedule of inscriptions
1. For general debates (“GDs”), the lists of speakers for all agenda items opened on Friday 26 February
2016 at 9 a.m. in office E-3056 behind Room XX and as from Monday 29 February 2016, the list is available
at the secretariat desk in Room XX. The list will close approximately 15 minutes after the beginning of the
respective debate. All delegates are requested to inscribe in person.
Order of the day, 8 March 2016

2. For all clustered IDs, electronic inscription will take place in advance on Wednesday 2 March 2016 at
around 3 p.m. and inscriptions on the list of speakers for each clustered ID will be possible until its closure
approximately 15 minutes after the beginning of the respective dialogue. Should the total duration of a given
clustered ID be estimated to last less than 4 hours, the speaking time limits will remain 5 minutes for Members
(and groups) and 3 minutes for observers. However, if it is estimated to be more than 4 hours, the speaking
time limits will be reduced to 3 minutes for Members (and groups) and 2 minutes for observers. Should this
measure be deemed insufficient to ensure that the total duration not exceed 4 hours, the speaking time limit
will be further reduced to 2 minutes for both Members (and groups) and observers.
3. For all individual IDs and panels, electronic inscription will take place at the beginning of each dialogue
or panel. The list will close approximately 15 minutes after the beginning of the respective dialogue or panel.
4. For the adoptions of UPR outcomes under agenda item 6, inscription will open on Monday 7 March at 9
a.m. and will remain open for four working days until Thursday 10 March at 6 p.m. No inscription on
the lists will be possible after that date. Speaking order will be drawn by lot by the Bureau of the HRC on
Friday 11 March. Speaking time for States varies depending on the number of speakers inscribed. Total time
for States Members of the Council, observer States and United Nations agencies is 20 minutes. Total time for
other stakeholders is 20 minutes, with speaking time of 2 minutes for all.
5. The right of reply is limited to two replies and is exercised either at the end of the day (unless there is a
panel discussion at the end of the day) or at the end of the consideration of a relevant agenda item concerned.
NHRIs and NGOs
* National human rights institutions (NHRIs) with “A” status accreditation wishing to make an oral statement
should approach the NGO/NHRI list of speakers desk in Room XX before the delivery of the statement.
** Accredited non-governmental organizations (NGOs) wishing to make an oral statement should submit a
request using the online registration system for oral statements available on the Council website at
http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HRC/Pages/NgoParticipation.aspx
NGO delegations must confirm in person their request and the name of the speaker who will deliver the
statement at the NGO/NHRI list of speakers desk in Room XX 24 hours preceding the relevant meeting.
