Oral report of the Chairperson of the Working Party
On the recommendation of the Working Party on the Functioning of the Governing Body and the International Labour Conference, the Governing Body decided:
(a) to propose to the International Labour Conference to implement in June 2013, on a trial basis and subject to certain derogations of its Standing Orders, the changes on which a tripartite consensus had been reached, as listed in paragraph 10 of document GB.317/INS/10;
(b) to request the Office to prepare for its 319th Session (October 2013):
(i) a detailed analysis of the trial implementation of those reforms;
(ii) a first set of proposed amendments to the Standing Orders of the International Labour Conference on the issues identified as those on which a tripartite consensus had been reached but which required, for their implementation, amendments to the Standing Orders at the 103rd Session of the International Labour Conference (2014); and
(iii) additional information on pending issues requiring further consultations and discussion.
