Launch of INCASTAT

On 28 September 2007, an electronic statistical database, INCASTAT, was launched, which generates the Annual Statistical Forms concerning return and access applications relating to the Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction; it also produces statistical charts. INCASTAT is available only to the Central Authorities designated under the 1980 Child Abduction Convention. 

More information about INCASTAT may be found in Preliminary Document No 9 of October 2006, "Report on the iChild pilot and the development of the International Child Abduction Statistical Database, INCASTAT", which can be downloaded here.
