On 14 April 2015, Argentina became the 17th State party to the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on a Communications Procedure (OP3 CRC). 

OP3 CRC entered into force on 14 April 2014 and allows the Committee on the Rights of the Child to accept complaints from children, groups of children or their representatives against any State that has ratified OP3 CRC. The Committee is also able to launch investigations into grave or systematic violations of children’s rights and States are able to bring complaints against each other, if they accepted this procedure.
