Title: Effective Abolition of Child Labour: Conventions Nos. 138 and 182

The ILO adopted its first Convention on child labour in 1919,the year of its foundation. Over the years, a further nine Conventions on the minimum age of admission to employment were adopted, covering among others agriculture and fishing. The most recent and comprehensive ILO standards on child labour are the Minimum Age Convention, 1973 (No.138),and its accompanying Recommendation (No.146),and the Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention,1999 (No.182)and its accompanying Recommendation (No.190).
