Office informal opinions on international labour standards

A new Office Procedure (IGDS 565) has been published - revising an old circular dating from the 1980s - to ensure that, in line with a long well-established practice, the Office provides sound and expeditious informal opinions in response to constituents' requests for clarifications as regards the scope and meaning of international labour standards. All Office informal opinions - prepared under the joint responsibility of the Office of Legal Adviser (JUR) and the International Labour Standards Department (NORMES) - will be posted on the ILO’s public web site in a dedicated section of the NORMLEX database.
