Ch.03 Rules of Parliamentary Procedure · General Rules

Standard Model United Nations Rules of Procedure

1. General Rules

All delegates are required to follow the Rules of Procedure and maintain decorum at all times.

1.1 Scope

The Rules of Procedure introduced in this Handbook lay the foundation for the flow of debate, and applies to all conventional committees (i.e. General Assembly, UNESCO, etc.). In crucial situations, the Moderator has the right to suspend certain rules to ensure the smooth running of the meeting.

For unconventional committees (i.e. Crisis Committee, International Criminal Justice, etc), a different set of Rules of Procedure apply according to the specific nature and functions of these committees.

1.2 Language

Delegates must adhere to the stipulated official language requirements of each committee; this includes all statements, documents, interactions, and speeches.

1.3 Quorum

A quorum is the minimum number of delegates required to begin debate. The Moderator may declare a Committee open when at least half of the voting members of the committee are present. However, substantive voting (i.e. Draft Resolutions and Unfriendly Amendments) requires at least a two-third majority of the delegates to be present.

1.4 Electronic Devices

In general, electronic devices may not be used in the committee rooms during the debate. Delegates using electronic devices during formal sessions may be seen as disrespectful to their colleagues and to the Dais, or to anyone giving a speech. However, this is subject to the discretion of the Dais. During an Unmoderated Caucus, delegates are permitted to use their electronic devices in the committee room to work on their documents, unless otherwise stipulated by the Dais.
