Entry into force
CRC Article = 49
When a treaty enters into force its provisions become binding for those States that have expressed their consent to be bound by the treaty. The rules of international treaty law concerning the entry into force of treaties are set forth in Article 24 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969). A treaty normally enters into force in such a manner and upon such date as it may provide or as the negotiating States may agree. Article 49 of the CRC provides that the CRC shall enter into force on the 30th day following the date of the deposit with the Secretary-General of the United Nations of the 20th instrument of ratification or accession. The CRC entered into force on 2 September 1990. For those States that expressed their consent to be bound by the CRC by means of ratification or accession after this date, the CRC entered into force on the thirtieth day following the date of deposit of the instrument of ratification or accession.
