Model Survey for Adoptive Parents and Tables on Costs

Last Updated: Friday, 29 April 2016 Published: Friday, 29 April 2016

At its meeting 15-17 March 2016, the Council on General Affairs and Policy (“Council”) endorsed the Model Survey for Adoptive Parents developed by the Experts’ Group on the Financial Aspects of Intercountry Adoption.


The Council also encouraged the Central Authorities under the 1993 Convention to administer the Survey and to complete the Tables on Costs. In light of concerns expressed by some Member States, the Council decided to revisit the issue of the feasibility of developing a Global Survey for Adoptive Parents at its next meeting (tentatively scheduled for March 2017).
