111th Session of the International Labour Conference (2023)

Submitting amendments in committees

The submission of amendments to the texts being considered by technical committees at the Conference is done through an online platform.

Accessing the platform

Government delegates: Accredited Government delegates or advisers, acting either in a national capacity or on behalf of a regional group, or other group of countries, can access the system by entering the PIN code provided on the badge they receive upon registration to the Conference.

Delegates are reminded that amendments must be seconded by at least one other member of the Committee in order to be considered by the Committee.

Employer and Worker delegates: The submission of amendments is centralized through the groups’ secretariats, which have been provided with access codes.

A two-step process

1. Submission

The times for submitting amendments online are indicated in each Committee’s webpage and in the Daily Bulletin.

Kindly note that amendments may only be submitted in English, French or Spanish.

When preparing the amendments it is particularly important to ensure that:
  • the purpose of the amendment is clear and that the amendment is consistent with the structure of the text and with ILO terminology; and
  • the amendment is manageable: It has a uniform purpose and will trigger only one discussion – amendments which relate to two or more distinct concepts should be split into two or more amendments to facilitate discussion.
2. Validation

For amendments to be processed, they must be validated by the secretariat of the Committee. If one or more amendment(s) require(s) further clarification, you will receive an email from the secretariat of the Committee concerned inviting you to provide the clarification needed to validate the amendment(s) concerned.
