    The CGRS has also put into place a follow-up procedure for families who received refugee status because of a fear of persecution based on the risk of FGM for their daughter(s). With this procedure, the CGRS sees to it that these girls are still protected after refugee status has been granted: every year, the parents of the girl(s) concerned have to send a medical certificate to the CGRS proving that their daughter has not been subjected to genital mutilation.
