Report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights*

* The present document was submitted late to reflect the most recent developments.





Note by the Secretary-General

In paragraph 17 of its resolution 31/36, the Human Rights Council requested the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, in close consultation with the Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises, to produce a database of all business enterprises involved in the activities detailed in paragraph 96 of the report of the independent international fact-finding mission (A/HRC/22/63) concerning the Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, to be updated annually, and to transmit the data therein in the form of a report to the Council at its thirty-fourth session.

At its organizational meeting, held on 13 February 2017, the Human Rights Council, pursuant to the recommendation of the High Commissioner, decided, for one time only, to defer its consideration of the above-mentioned report, and that the report should be submitted no later than the end of December 2017. The High Commissioner made the recommendation in the light of the need for additional time to consider the inputs received in the context of an open call for submissions, which closed on 31 December 2016, and to ensure a fair process with regard to stakeholders prior to the compilation and transmission of the database in a report to the Council.
