Following the adoption of the Rome Statute, the Preparatory Commission for an International Criminal Court was established to draft the supplementary documents to the Rome Statute.
These included the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the International Criminal Court, the Elements of Crimes, the Agreement on Privileges and Immunities of the International Criminal Court and the Financial Rules and Regulations. The Preparatory Commission met ten times between 1999 and 2002.
Amnesty International participated in all sessions of the Preparatory Commissions and lobbied governments to adopt effective supplementary documents.
