"Labour Inspection Convention"
Bangladesh is a signatory to ILO’s labour inspection
convention – which obliges states to establish
an inspectorate able to enforce those labour laws
that the government has enacted. The Convention requires,
for example, an Inspectorate to employ a sufficient
number of trained and competent inspectors with the
resources to carry out an appropriate number of inspections.
Every two years the Bangladesh government must report
to the ILO’s Committee of Experts about its
compliance with the Convention.
Last year the CCA was involved (along with a Bangladesh
based NGO called OSHE) in producing a report which
was sent to the ILO’s commtee
