The Report - Additional Facility Conciliation

3.4.10-Report-LP.pngThe Commission issues a Report at the end of the conciliation process.  In its Report the Commission can:

  • decline jurisdiction;
  • record the parties’ failure to reach an agreement;
  • record a party’s failure to appear or participate in the proceeding; or
  • record the parties’ agreement.

The Commission provides notice to the parties before issuing the Report if it considers that there is no likelihood of agreement between the parties or if a party fails to appear or participate in the proceeding (Article 37(2) of the Conciliation (Additional Facility) Rules).

The Commission closes the proceeding after giving such notice or if it finds that it has no jurisdiction or if the parties have reached an agreement (Articles 37(2) and (3) of the Conciliation (Additional Facility) Rules).

A Report that records the parties’ agreement may contain the detailed terms and conditions of such agreement if the parties wish (Article 37(3) of the Conciliation (Additional Facility) Rules). The Report must record any agreement by the parties with respect to the use of information obtained during the proceeding (Article 38(2) of the Conciliation (Additional Facility) Rules).
