The Selection Committee (ILC Standing Orders, articles 4 and 55(2)) is composed of 28 members appointed by the Government group, 14 members appointed by the Employers’ group, and 14 by the Workers’ group. Its responsibilities include arranging the programme of the Conference, fixing the time and agenda of its plenary sittings and addressing other routine questions on behalf of the Conference. The Selection Committee may be called on at any time to consider specific issues referred to it by the Conference.
In accordance with the recommendation made by the Governing Body at its 335th Session (March 2019), the procedural responsibilities of this Committee will be discharged by the Conference itself at its opening sitting. Therefore, the Selection Committee will be convened only if the need arises.
