Act n° 2007-293 of the 5th of March, 2007 reforming children's protection provisions (France)
Replaces the notion of children suffering psychological or physical abuses at home by the one, more inclusive, of "endangered children", advocated by NGOs fighting against children's abuses, including FGM. Built protection measures upon a collaborative project also including parents and reinforces educational measures for parents. Strengthens the application of some protection measures to illegal underage migrants and underage migrants without family. Modifies the procedure to report situations of risks, now involving the Cellules départementales de recueil, de traitement et d'évaluation / * Department-based units of data collection, treatment and evaluation.
Information collecting point
Although the competences of the courts for children are maintained, a Cellule départementale de recueil, de traitement et d'évaluation / * District-based unit of data collection, treatment and evaluation has to be created under the authority of the President of the general council of each "département"). FGM have to be included to the reporting activity.
