2020 Report of the ILO Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations

Now available for information and action until 10 March 2020

Dear Members and Partners,

The 2020 Report of the Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations (CEACR) (Report III - A) is now available via the link in the Resources box. It has two parts:

  • Part I - General Report which includes comments about Member States' respect for their Constitutional obligations
  • Part II - Observations on the application of ratified international labour standards by ILO Member States.

We draw your attention to the wording on Paragraph 36, which again makes clear the non-binding nature of the opinions of the CEACR.

We encourage IOE Members to read both parts of the Report and to send comments on the observations regarding your country not later than 10 March 2020 to Rita Yip (yip(at)ioe-emp.com).

These comments will assist IOE in preparing the negotiation of the list of cases of the Conference Committee on the Application of Standards.

You can find the list of previous CEACR Reports here.
