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 countries and territories generally are not eligible to become members of the ILO, so ILO Conventions 138 and 182 do not apply to any of them. Territories are subject to laws of the sovereign country.
Statistics on the number of working children under the age of 15 in Tokelau are unavailable. Information is also unavailable on the incidence and nature of child labor. Education is compulsory between the ages of 5 and 16 years. Primary school enrollment and attendance rates are unavailable for Tokelau.
 ILO official, electronic communication 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.
