Abstract This report addresses the issue of the job content of labour inspectors in nine French-speaking Sub-Saharan African countries, as an integral part of labour administration as specified by ILO Convention No.150 on Labour Administration. Countries covered are Benin, Burundi, Côte d'Ivoire, Gabon, Mali, Central African Republic, Rwanda, Senegal and Chad. While addressing the issue of how the inspection services operate, the report also discusses and compares the legal powers and functions which are effectively endowed by each of the national labour administration systems.
