OECD Headquarters, CC 12
International organisations (IOs) play a growing role as standard setting bodies in supporting regulatory co-operation. At the OECD’s initiative and with the support and leadership of a core group of 6 committed partners (FAO, IMO, ISO, OIML, UNECE, and WHO), 50 international organisations have been working together for the past 3 years to undertake comparative analysis and deepen the understanding of their contribution to global standard setting. This collaboration resulted in the collection of unique and valuable evidence, reflected in the report International Regulatory Co-operation: the Role of International Organisations and seven case studies, to be launched on 2 November 2016 at the OECD Headquarters in Paris.
This report and case studies will make publicly available reliable and precise information about the IOs practice in the field of international regulatory co-operation. This work will be accessible to the scientific community, which will thereafter be able to work on the matter, notably with a view to conceptualize as well as criticize the said practice and, more generally, formulate opinions on how to improve the role that International Organizations are called to play in the current globalized world.
In this context, three scholars have been called by the Centre of International law of the University of Nanterre to present their views, as academics, on three related questions.
Chair of the conference: Nicola Bonucci, Director for Legal Affairs, OECD
