ILAC has a long standing relationship with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The OECD Series on principles of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and compliance monitoring, including the OECD Position Papers on ISO/IEC 17025, laboratory accreditation and outsourcing of inspection, are available from the GLP section of the OECD website.
In addition, ILAC is represented on the OECD ongoing initiative: Partnership of International Organisations for Effective Rulemaking. A key goal of this voluntary Partnership is ‘Working Towards More Effective International Instruments’. In September 2021 the IO Compendium of International Organisations’ Practices was published in support of this goal: https://www.oecd.org/gov/regulatory-policy/compendium-of-international-organisations-practices-846a5fa0-en.htm. “This Compendium gathers the experiences of some 50 IOs with different mandates, members and institutional frameworks to draw lessons for international rulemaking. It examines the diversity of instruments in the international rulemaking ecosystem; describes trends and challenges; and discusses how to strengthen the implementation and evaluation of international instruments, ensure efficient stakeholder engagement, and maximise opportunities for co-ordination across IOs.”
The Partnership is currently finalising its action plan for the biennium 2022-23 with the working title: International Organisations together towards more inclusive, agile and effective international instruments.
