The Action Plan does not give any concrete actions relating to NHRIs. In the introduction, the NAP states that:

“It should be noted that Belgium does not yet have a national human rights mechanism (in casu, a national institute for human rights) based on the Paris Principles. In accordance with our international commitments, and the federal government agreement of 9 October 2014, the competent authorities will continue to work towards the development of such a national human rights mechanism by the end of the government legislature.”
