International organizations have strong instruments to implement the decisions of the UN Security Council. In order to participate in implementing such decisions, they will require relevant legal basis. The legal basis for participation of international organization in implementing the UN Security Council decisions falls into two general categories: 1- The regulations of international organizations 2- The provisions of the Charter of the United Nations. Statute of international organizations, practices and implied powers are placed in the first category. The provisions of the Chapter VII (Article 48(2)) and Chapter VIII of The Charter go with the second category.
