The intention of privileges and immunities is to enable the International Labour Organization to effectively carry out its mandate, through the safeguarding of its property, funds, assets, communications, et cetera. Functional immunities are extended to all officials of the Office, as well as, to Workers' and Employers' representatives that are attending meetings convened by the Organization.
