According to the text from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tokyo,
the adopted resolution from Commission for Social Development
states that ECOSOC "Recommends to the General Assembly to consider
the suggested supplement to the Standard Rules contained in the annex
of the report E.CN.5/2004/4, with a view to completing its
consideration at its 59th session", which is much weaker than
the original which stated "Decides to adopt ....". I hear it was the
U.S. government which insisted on this change.
The supplement can be found at;
Para. 33 is particularly important in connection with the convention
and users and survivors of psychiatry.
