MOD to review Armed Forces exemption from UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

 

The MOD is to conduct its five-yearly review of the armed forces’ exemption from the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

 

The exemption means that the armed forces are not required by law, to recruit or retain personnel with a condition that may be disabling under UK law.

 

Disability is defined as a person with ‘a physical or mental impairment, which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on the ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.’ In a practical sense, this includes a broad range of physical and mental conditions, including cancer and multiple sclerosis, to arthritis and mental health.

 

As part of the UK’s obligations to the UN’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, every five years it must look again at the armed forces’ exemption and review whether it is still appropriate.
