Members of the Commission and all other persons assisting the Commission in a Fact-Finding mandate are under an obligation, during and after their terms of office, to keep secret the facts or information of which they have become aware during the discharge of their functions. The procedure provides that the Commission submits a report on the findings to the parties. This report is treated strictly confidential unless all parties to the conflict decide otherwise.

Subject to the obligation of confidentiality, the Commission shall issue, whenever it considers it useful, a general report on its activities to the governments of the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions. Such a report has been written by the President in the view of the diplomatic reunion of the States having recognized the competence of the Commission, in 1996, 2001 and 2006. Furthermore, the Commission publishes reports on internal training exercises and on its participation as an observer in international meetings.
