The Standards Initiative: Implementing the workplan for strengthening the supervisory system - Progress report

Report on progress, following consultations with the tripartite constituents, to implement the revised workplan for the strengthening of the supervisory system. The document restates the progress report presented to the Governing Body in March 2018 which presented concrete options concerning the actions prioritized for examination by the Governing Body – operation of the article 24 procedure (action 2.2); the streamlining of reporting (action 3.1); and the potential of article 19, paragraphs 5(e) and 6(d) (action 4.3) – and sought guidance on actions concerning a regular conversation between the supervisory bodies (action 1.2); codification of the article 26 procedure (action 2.1); and further steps to ensure legal certainty (action 2.3) (see draft decision in paragraph 72 of GB.332/INS/5(Rev.)). The present document presents a revised draft decision based on the partial examination of the progress report in March 2018 and the consultations with the tripartite constituents since (see paragraph 21).
