 General Survey
On the basis of article 19 of the ILO Constitution, the Committee of Experts publishes an in-depth annual General Survey on Member States' national law and practice, on a subject chosen by the Governing Body. These surveys are established mainly on the basis of reports received from member States and information transmitted by employers' and workers' organizations. They allow the Committee of Experts to examine the impact of Conventions and Recommendations, to analyse the difficulties indicated by governments as impeding their application, and to identify means of overcoming these obstacles.
 Governance Conventions
Conventions Nos. 81, 122, 129 and 144. Previously referred to as priority Conventions. The reporting cycle for governance Conventions is three years.
