Incorporation

     IRC site

Note:
Many countries have constitutional provisions which determine the status of treaties in the national law, so that the precise legal implications of becoming party to the CRC will vary from State to State. In general, the approach of States to treaties can be divided into the transformation approach and the incorporation approach. The latter approach means that once the requirements for ratification have been satisfied, the CRC itself becomes automatically part of the national law.
