Work plan on the strengthening of the supervisory system: Proposals on further steps to ensure legal certainty and information on other action points in the work plan

The document captures the outcome of the informal tripartite consultations held in January 2020 encompassing a tripartite exchange of views on proposals to consider further steps to ensure legal certainty, based on the Office paper on the elements and conditions for the operation of an independent body under article 37(2) of the Constitution and of any other consensus-based options, as well as the article 37(1) procedure. The document provides further information on progress in implementing selected proposals of the work plan to strengthen the supervisory machinery. Note: The consideration of this item has been deferred from the 338th Session (March 2020) of the Governing Body and has since been presented to the 341st and 343rd Sessions of the Governing Body for information. The content of the document is the same as GB.343/INS/INF/5(Rev.1) with a few adjustments in paragraph 73 and Appendix II. A draft decision has been added in paragraph 74.
