From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners were adopted on 30 August 1955 by the United Nations Congress on the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders, held at Geneva, and approved by the Economic and Social Council in resolutions of 31 July 1957 and 13 May 1977.

Although not legally binding, the Standards provide guidelines for international and domestic law as regards persons held in prisons and other forms of custody. They set out what is generally accepted as being good principle and practice in the treatment of prisoners and the management of penal institutions.
