ILS Compliance and Reporting

Trade for Decent Work Project

Sustaining Strengthened National Capacities to Improve ILS Compliance and Reporting (Mongolia). The project aims at improving the application of the ILO fundamental Conventions in Mongolia through improved labour relations and working conditions.


Mongolia continues its transition from a central planning to a market economy over the last 30 years. Efforts to align national labour laws with International Labour Standards (ILS) to manage challenges in the market economy have been on-going for a decade. The government and social partners remain committed to aligning national labour market governance with ILS, especially the ILO Fundamental Conventions.

Thanks to the EU’s support, the ILO has been assisting Mongolia in monitoring and reporting on the status of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work (FPRW) in the country to boost its benefits from the EU GSP+ schemes since 2015. Mongolia is making progress, though incremental. While the public and certain sectors of society demand better human rights protection, unacceptable labour practices remain. To accelerate the pace of legal reform, a mix of approaches that cultivate social consensus, increase technical capacity on ILS and effectively use them, and heighten political commitments to accelerate process of reform is necessary.

Project Objective

To strengthen Mongolia’s participation in the EU’s GSP+ programme by enhancing its capacity to discharge its reporting obligations

  1. Mongolia is up-to-date on the reporting of ILO Conventions including all eight fundamental conventions.
