The Universal Declaration of Human Rights can be cited as a document found on the web in APA. It is not classed as a treaty or a legally binding document (though it influences the development of legally binding treaties internationally).

The elements to note for the in-text and reference list elements are:

Author: United Nations
Publication date: 1948
Title: Universal declaration of human rights

Location: URL or pdf hyperlink (depending on the document format you have viewed)
