Guidance for National Society Statutes

The Guidance for National Society Statutes (2018) is our key guiding resource to support National Societies to develop, review and revise their statutes and other relevant regulatory or policy base texts. Doing so can help them to carry out their humanitarian mandates and roles effectively and in accordance with the mission and Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. The guidance document is available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian.

An addendum to the Guidance Document has been adopted to support National Societies in conducting and performing their governance functions (meetings, e-elections, voting, disciplinary processes, handling of complaints, etc.) remotely. The English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian versions are available here.

Additional information and supporting resources relating to National Society Statutes have been developed and are available here.
