This Director-General’s Announcement is issued under the authority granted to the Director-General by articles 8 and 10 of the Constitution of the ILO and decisions of the Governing Body. It draws upon the resolution concerning technical cooperation adopted by the 95th Session of the International Labour Conference (2006), and the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization adopted by the 97th Session of the International Labour Conference (2008).

The UN Guidelines on Cooperation between the United Nations and the Business Community have contributed to the formulation of this policy.
