Managing international labour standards reporting
Welcome to the Managing international labour standards reporting website!
The purpose of this website is to support governments and the social partners - employers and their organizations as well as workers and their organizations - in improving practices in reporting on International Labour Standards (ILS) adopted and supervised by the International Labour Organization. Reporting on ILS is an obligation for member States set down in the ILO Constitution. It is hoped that this website will contribute to improving ILS reporting and implementation.
Many different resources are gathered together by national administrations in order to prepare ILS reports. Human resources, information from government ministries, the social partners and civil society, and material resources all need to be brought together and managed to produce informative and responsive reports and to deliver them on time.
This website looks at ILS reporting in terms of managing all resources needed to produce and communicate them. It collects and distributes examples of good practices contributed by ILO constituents in the hope that these shared national examples will inspire improvement of practices elsewhere. It also provides tools, a helpdesk and various information resources.
The website is divided into 4 sections which can all be accessed without registration or login. They are described below.
This section provides information about reporting practices contributed by ILO constituents from different countries and regions. The section also contains a collection point where constituents and others, such as Standard specialists and all those dealing with ILS reporting, can contribute their own good reporting examples.
This section offers reporting tools of all types to help ILO constituents in various aspects of their ILS reporting work. The tools have been developed by the ITCILO in collaboration with the ILO. They are offered to help users, e.g. government officials responsible for reporting or employers' and workers' representatives dealing with ILO matters better organize and carry out their reporting-related work.
Are you needing some assistance in connection with your reporting work? Come to the reporting helpdesk where you will find a form to complete for submission. Responses to questions often asked at the helpdesk will also be available for review in this section.
This section contains a collection of ILO resources, e.g. key documents, selected publications and databases, that can be of use in any reporting work. It also includes a glossary giving definitions of reporting-related terms and a guide describing the website and its approach.
This website has been conceived and developed by the International Labour Standards, Rights at Work and Gender Equality Programme of the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO), which is also administering it, in collaboration with the International Labour Standards Department of the ILO.
The ITCILO yearly offers training courses to the ILO constituents on ILS, reporting and other Constitutional obligations. Furthermore, the ITCILO implements tailor-made courses which aim to share practices and tools in order to better manage ILS reporting in the future, following the approach proposed in this website.
