Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29), and the Labour Inspection Convention, 1947 (No. 81), made by delegates
to the 103rd Session (2014) of the International Labour Conference under article 26 of the ILO Constitution
Recalling the decision adopted in its 325th Session (November 2015) and taking into account the assessment contained in the report of the high-level tripartite delegation (Appendix II of document GB.326/INS/8(Rev.)) which acknowledged that the Government of Qatar had taken a number of concrete measures and that at the same time many challenges remained, the Governing Body decided to:

(b) request the Government of Qatar to report on the follow-up to the assessment of the high-level tripartite delegation to be discussed at the 328th Session (November 2016) and on the implementation of Law No. 21 of 2015, upon its entry into force, at the 329th Session (March 2017);
(c) defer further consideration on the appointment of a commission of inquiry until its 329th Session (March 2017), in light of the information referred to in paragraphs (a) and (b) above.
