Standards Review Mechanism Tripartite Working Group (SRM TWG)

Sixth meeting of the SRM TWG (2021)

At its 337th Session in October-November 2019, the Governing Body had decided that the sixth meeting of the Standards Review Mechanism Tripartite Working Group would take place from 14 to 18 September 2020, when it would review instruments concerning social security (unemployment benefit, comprehensive standards and medical care and sickness).

In the context of the COVID-19 epidemic and uncertainty related to the travel restrictions in many Member States, the Governing Body decided by correspondence in July 2020 to postpone the sixth meeting of the SRM TWG from 14–18 September 2020 until a date in 2021 to be determined by the Governing Body at its 340th Session (October-November 2020) and to request the Office to continue its preparation of the sixth meeting and its follow-up of all previous decisions.

As a result, further information will be available on the SRM TWG’s webpage in November once the Governing Body has taken a decision on the date of the meeting in 2021. In the meantime - and as always - constituents are welcome to seek information and advice from the ILO helpdesk on the SRM TWG (srmtwg@ilo.org).
