International Labour Conference

Held annually, the ILC is the highest policy making body for the ILO. It plays both a political and a technical role and is the place where items are either discussed for the purposes of elaborating new policy priorities for the Organization, or where international labour standards are negotiated and adopted.

The Conference also has committees, such as the Committee on the Application of Standards, which form part of the organization's supervisory machinery enabling the examination of a number of countries' application of ratified conventions.

The IOE prepares a specially dedicated microsite for members to support their participation in the Conference. During the Conference, the IOE acts as the Secretariat of the Employers' Group and supports and guides the Group in its participation in the committees and debates.
