Guatemala ratified the CRPD and Optional Protocol in April 2009. Guatemala's disability law is from 1996 and therefore predates the country's ratification of the CRPD. As of March 2017, Guatemala is in the process of finalizing a new law on disability which will replace the 1996 Law on the Care for People with Disabilities. The new law (No. 5125) would bring Guatemala into greater compliance with the CRPD.
