An Agreement on the Enforcement of Sentences with the International Criminal Court is a formal agreement whereby a state agrees to carry out a sentence imposed by the Court. Article 103 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court states that a "sentence of imprisonment shall be served in a State designated by the Court from a list of States which have indicated to the Court their willingness to accept sentenced persons." To this end, the Court has concluded Agreements with a number of states that have declared their willingness to accept sentenced persons.
Several states have entered into general agreements to enforce sentences imposed by the Court.
