REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE HUMAN RIGHT TO SAFE DRINKING WATER AND SANITATION :ADDENDUM
These very small-scale water
providers are in fact the major water providers to the poor in very remote areas or in
36. (...) Further, as informal service
providers tend to be unregulated, they charge prices determined by what the market will
bear or by price-fixing between providers, rather than by considerations of affordability.
(...) Since 2004, 118 water service providers have
registered, including small-scale providers, community-based organizations and non-
governmental organizations, but many providers are still unregistered.

International Code of Conduct for Private Security Service Providers
23. Through a Swiss-led multi-stakeholder initiative, the International Code of Conduct
for Private Security Service Providers came into being in November 2010. (...) For example, in one country, the company provided training to security
providers due to the lack of skilled and qualified workers. (...) There are, however, also
challenges for Swiss representations operating in countries with little or no Association
membership among security providers and where qualified security providers can be hard
REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS TO SAFE DRINKING WATER AND SANITATION ON HIS MISSION TO PORTUGAL :NOTE / BY THE SECRETARIAT
Service management models and service providers
22. The water sector in Portugal is organized into two main levels. (...) At
the bulk level, there are 11 water service providers and 9 sanitation service providers.
Under Decree-Law No. 72/2016, the service provisions at the bulk level are under the
jurisdiction of the State through the multi-municipal systems. (...) In addition to the level at which the water and sanitation service providers engage,
the providers are distinguished according to different management models.

RECONSIDERATION OF APPROACH TO IDENTITY MANAGEMENT AND TRUST SERVICES : SUBMISSION BY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
There could be several parties that
contribute to or provide part of an IdM service (e.g., trust providers, registrars,
enrolment agents, credential service providers, stewards, authentication providers,
hubs, etc.). (...) Draft Article 25: Liability for trust service providers
We think this section needs to be reconsidered. (...) These third parties in reliance on the IDM and trust
services systems would not normally have any power to choose the providers and
therefore would have to rely on assurances of providers outside the jurisdiction of
the enacting state.
REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS TO SAFE DRINKING WATER AND SANITATION ON HIS MISSION TO MEXICO :NOTE / BY THE SECRETARIAT
Those levels of coverage show that service providers are capable of
effectively promoting implementation of the rights to water and sanitation. (...) The Special Rapporteur was informed that there
is no quality surveillance of informal water providers by the Ministry of Health, which is a
cause for concern in view of the prevalence of such providers in Mexico to supplement
insufficient public services.
32. (...) The
Special Rapporteur ascertained that those who receive no service or poor service by their
providers are those who experience the highest economic and social impact, since they are
compelled to rely on expensive alternative or supplementary ways of accessing water, such
as bottled water, water trucks and informal providers.

Financial sustainability of service providers
18. In order to address the financial sustainability of service providers, the reform
resulted in the creation of a water asset management company, a Government-owned entity
responsible for water asset management. (...) The National Water Services Commission requests providers to
develop a three-year plan. It provides institutional support linked to the achievement of
agreed performance indicators. (...) The informal providers play the role of monitoring water quality, not supplying water when
it looks muddy or when the colour changes.
NOTE VERBALE DATED 2006/05/30 FROM THE PERMANENT MISSION OF JAPAN TO THE UNITED NATIONS OFFICE AT GENEVA ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARIAT OF THE COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS
The law thus encourages telecommunications service providers to take voluntary
measures in such cases.
Upon legislation of the Providers Liability Restriction Law, at a conference consisting of
telecommunications industry associations, etc. held in May 2002, the “Guidelines concerning
defamation or privacy violation under the Providers Liability Restriction Law” were established.
In the guidelines, action standards for telecommunications service providers were clarified in
cases where telecommunications service providers are requested to block the transmission of the
information concerned by a person claiming to have had his/her reputation slandered or his/her
privacy infringed because of information distribution by specified telecommunications.

2023. By mid-2024, all rental housing is to meet the standards.
50. (...) Many people reported to the Special Rapporteur a high number of visits from experts
contracted by public and private insurance providers, but noted that they had not received
timely compensation for the necessary repairs.
