Declarations, Reservations etc.

Objection with regard to the reservation made by Brunei Darussalam upon ratification: (3 February 2017)
"The Government of Austria has examined the reservation made by Brunei Darussalam upon ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Austria considers that by referring to the Constitution of Brunei Darussalam and to the beliefs and principles of Islam Brunei Darussalam has made a reservation of a general and indeterminate scope. This reservation does not clearly define for the other States Parties to the Convention the extent to which the reserving State has accepted the obligations of the Convention.
Austria therefore considers the reservation to be incompatible with the object and purpose of the Convention and objects to it.
This objection shall not preclude the entry into force of the Convention between the Republic of Austria and Brunei Darussalam."

Objection with regard to the reservation made by Malaysia upon ratification: (24 June 2011)
"The Government of Austria has examined the reservation made by Malaysia upon ratification to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The Government of Austria finds that articles 15 and 18 relate to fundamental principles of the Convention and that the exclusion of the application of these articles is contrary to the object and purpose of the Convention. The Government of Austria therefore objects to this reservation.
This position, however, does not preclude the entry into force in its entirety of the Convention between Austria and Malaysia."

Objection with regard to the declaration made by the Islamic Republic of Iran upon accession: (1 November 2010)
"The Government of Austria has examined the declaration made by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran upon its accession to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities of 13 December 2006.
The Government of Austria considers that in aiming to exclude the application of those provisions of the Convention which are deemed incompatible with applicable national rules, the Islamic Republic of Iran has made a reservation of general and indeterminate scope. This reservation does not clearly define for the other States Parties to the Convention the extent to which the reserving State has accepted the obligations of the Convention.
The Government of Austria therefore considers the reservation of the Islamic Republic of Iran incompatible with the object and purpose of the Convention and objects to it.
This objection shall not preclude the entry into force of the Convention between Austria and the Islamic Republic of Iran."

Objection with regard to the reservation made by El Salvador upon signature and confirmed upon ratification: (26 September 2008)
"The Government of Austria has examined the reservation to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Optional Protocol thereto made by the Government of El Salvador.
According to its reservation, El Salvador envisages becoming Party to the Convention only to the extent that its provisions do not prejudice or violate the provisions of any of the precepts, principles and norms enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of El Salvador, particularly in its enumeration of principles. In the absence of further clarification, this reservation does not clearly specify the extent of El Salvador’s derogation from the provisions of the Convention. This general and vague wording of the reservation raises doubts as to the degree of commitment assumed by El Salvador in becoming a party to the Convention and is therefore incompatible with international law.
The Government of Austria objects to the reservation made by the Government of the Republic of El Salvador to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and Optional Protocol thereto.
This objection, however, does not preclude the entry into force, in its entirety, of the Convention between Austria and El Salvador."
