The meeting will discuss the implementation of the United Nations National Quality Assurance Frameworks Manual for Official Statistics (UN NQAF Manual) developed by the Expert Group and adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in March 2019 at its fiftieth session. In its decision 50/106, the Commission welcomed the planned initiatives to support countries in the implementation of a national quality assurance framework, including through the establishment of an expert forum, the sharing of best practices and the development of tools. This meeting will review the workplan of the Expert Group and its implementation plan for the UN NQAF Manual, work on the development of a checklist for self-assessment and other tools and develop a plan for an ongoing engagement with countries.
