This chapter comments on Article 47 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 47 sets out the disciplinary measures for elected officials of the Court, that is, judges, the Prosecutor, Deputy Prosecutor, Registrar or Deputy Registrar who have committed misconduct of a less serious nature than that set out in article 46. Disciplinary measures that may be imposed consist of a reprimand or a pecuniary sanction, not to exceed six months of the salary of the person concerned. The procedural guarantees governing removal to office, pursuant to article 46 of the Statute, are also applicable in the case of disciplinary proceedings.
