The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) is an international treaty which entered into force on 23 March 1976.

A copy of this treaty is available here: http://www.ohchr.org/en/professionalinterest/pages/ccpr.aspx
The Human Rights Committee is a body of 18 independent experts that monitors implementation of the ICCPR by its State parties. All State parties are obliged to submit periodic reports to the Committee detailing how Convention rights are being implemented. State parties commonly report to the Committee in regular intervals (roughly every four years). The Committee examines States’ reports and summarises any concerns or recommendations it may have in the form of Concluding Observations upon further consultation with a reporting State. Further information about the Human Rights Committee, as well as publications pertaining to its work and remit, can be found here: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/CCPR/Pages/CCPRIndex.aspx.
The United States of America last submitted a periodic report in May 2012 (See Report.PDF) The Human Rights Committee published its Concluding Observations relating to this report in May 2014. (See Observations.PDF)
