- The International Labour Conference is held and during it the Conference Committee meets to examine the Committee of Experts report and a selection of individual cases where governments are called to present full particulars orally. The employers’ and workers’ representatives in the Conference Committee select these cases which normally will include the cases with double footnotes. The hearings of individual cases result in the adoption of conclusions, which are communicated orally to the governments concerned in the Conference Committee. Summaries of the discussion in the Conference Committee and the conclusions are contained in the report of the Conference Committee adopted at the end of the Conference. The report is published on the ILO website and subsequently distributed in printed form. The Office circulates a printed copy of the report of the Conference Committee in July.
- The follow-up to cases considered by the Conference Committee is ensured by the Committee of Experts in the context of the regular article 22 reporting process.
