This chapter comments on Article 43 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 43 sets out the functions and responsibilities of the Registry, one of the four organs of the International Criminal Court listed in article 34. It is a neutral body, charged with judicial and administrative support functions for all organs of the Court. In terms of budget and size, it is the largest. With the Registrar at its head and under the supervision of the Presidency, the Registry ensures the non-judicial aspects of the administration and the servicing of the Court. These include responsibilities with regard to the defence, victims and witnesses, outreach, and detention.
