This chapter comments on Article 52 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 52 provides for an additional instrument aimed at governing the ‘routine functioning’ of the Court. Unlike the Rules of Procedure and Evidence, the authority for their adoption is entrusted to the judges of the Court, subject to the power of the Assembly of States Parties to revoke them. There are 126 separate regulations in the Regulations of the Court, grouped in nine chapters: General Provisions; Composition and Administration of the Court; Proceedings before the Court; Counsel Issues and Legal Assistance; Victims Participation and Reparations; Detention Matters; Cooperation and Enforcement; Removal from Office and Disciplinary Measures; and Adoption of the Code of Judicial Ethics.
