This chapter comments on Article 123 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 123 provides a mechanism for convening a Review Conference to consider any amendments to this Statute. It also requires that a review conference be held seven years after entry into force of the Statute. The Review Conference contemplated by article 123 took place in 2010. No further review conferences have been convened. The functions and authority of a review conference, whose central function is the adoption of amendments to the Statute, appear to be the same as those of a meeting of the Assembly of States Parties.
