There is limited information regarding the extent and nature of child labor and the quality and provision of education in non-independent countries and territories eligible for GSP, AGOA and CBTPA benefits. These areas generally are not eligible to become members of the ILO, and Convention 138 and Convention 182 do not apply to any of them.[2794]

Information on the incidence and nature of child labor, child labor laws and legislation and government polices and programs to eliminate the worst forms of child labor is unavailable for the following territories and non-independent countries: British Indian Ocean Territory (territory of the United Kingdom), Christmas Islands, (territory of Australia) Cocos (Keeling) Islands (territory of Australia), Heard Island and MacDonald Islands (territory of the United Kingdom), Norfolk Island (territory of Australia), Tokelau (territory of Australia), and Wallis and Futuna (territory of France).[2843]


[2794] Natan Elkin, ILO, electronic correspondence to USDOL official, January 31, 2002. Most of the areas covered in this summary report are considered by the ILO to be non-metropolitan territories and therefore, are ineligible to become members of the ILO. An ILO member can submit a declaration to the ILO requesting that these conventions apply to their non-metropolitan territories.

[2843] A Central Intelligence Agency fact sheet states that Heard Island and MacDonald Island are currently uninhabited.
