RO 39 219 and SR 14 91; FF 1920 V 443 the convention was adopted in the first session of the International Labour Conference and signed by the president and the Secretary general of this session. Each State became party to the convention only after having deposited its instrument of ratification (art. 7). As a result of the dissolution of the League of Nations and the amendment of the Constitution of the International Labour Organization, certain modifications of the convention became necessary in order to ensure the exercise of the functions of Chancery who were previously entrusted to the Secretary-General of the League of Nations. He was taken into account in the present text of these amendments by the conv. from 9 oct. 1946 (RS 0.822.719.0).
