Matters relating to the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO - Withdrawal of the recognition of the Tribunal’s jurisdiction by the Permanent Court of Arbitration

This paper provides information about the intention of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), one of the 60 international organizations that have recognized the jurisdiction of the ILO Administrative Tribunal, to discontinue its recognition of the Tribunal’s jurisdiction. The Governing Body is invited to take note of the intention of the PCA to terminate its membership and confirm that the PCA will no longer be subject to the Tribunal’s competence as from the date of the Governing Body decision (see the draft decision in paragraph 7).
