This notice is a request for information and/or comment on the 2013 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor report (TDA report) issued by the Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) on October 7, 2014, regarding child labor in certain foreign countries. The recently published TDA report assessed efforts by more than 140 countries to reduce the worst forms of child labor and reported whether countries made significant, moderate, minimal, or no advancement. It also suggested actions foreign countries can take to eliminate the worst forms of child labor through legislation, enforcement, coordination, policies and social programs. This year's report introduced a new streamlined format for country profiles to make it more user-friendly and a better policy tool for engagement. Relevant information will be used by the Department of Labor (DOL) in preparation of its ongoing reporting mandated under the Trade and Development Act of 2000. In addition, ILAB will use relevant information to conduct assessments of each country's advancement toward eliminating the worst forms of child labor during the current calendar year compared to previous years.
