Interactive diagram on the control mechanism of the European Convention on Human Rights from 1998 to 2009. Since it was adopted, the control mechanism for the rights in the Convention has been amended several times. It was thoroughly reformed by Protocol No 11, which was adopted in 1994 and came into force on 1 November 1998; then by Protocol No 14, which was adopted in 2004 and came into force on 1 June 2010. However, since Protocol No 14 did not come into force early enough, the states parties to the Convention agreed to adopt a Protocol No 14 bis, which contained just some of the procedural measures in Protocol No 14, as an interim and provisional measure. Protocol No 14 bis, adopted in May 2009, came into force on 1 October 2009 and ceased to be in force or applied on a provisional basis as from 1 June 2010.
