On 2 November 2016, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría launched the results of 3 years of intense co-operation among 50 international organisations on international rule-making: the report on International Regulatory Co-operation: The Role of International Organisations in Fostering the Rules of Globalisation. In addition, five organisations presented their own experience with fostering international regulatory co-operation: International Organization for Standardisation (ISO), United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The launch was followed by a brainstorming session open to all international organisations having contributed to the OECD survey to discuss the follow-up to the analytic work on international rules and standards.
In the margins of the launch, an academic session was held to offer a critical perspective on international organisations’ development of international rules and standards for the current globalised world.
