Dear colleagues,

If the standing order act becomes applicable to an establishment and the establishment wants to follow the model standing orders rather than to have certified standing orders. What procedure does it have to follow?

My query is that in case an establishment wants to go for model standing orders, application of it is by default or it has to write to the certifying offer communicating its intention to adopt model standing order in compliance with Section 3 of the IESO Act 1946.

Dear Colleague,

There is no option like provision to adopt Model Standing Orders. As and when the establishment is covered under the provisions of IESO Act, then it is mandatory to go for a Certified Standing Orders for that particular establishment. In the mean time from the date on which the Act becomes applicable and ending on the date on which the standing order is finally certified, the model standing orders is applicable. This is a temporary arrangement only. Kindly have a reading on the section 12 A of the Act.

Industrial Employment Standing Orders Act 1946: [12-A. Temporary application of model standing orders.--(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in Sections to12, for the period commencing on the date on which this Act becomes applicable to an industrial establishment and ending with the date on which the standing orders as finally certified under this Act come into operation under Section 7 in that establishment, the prescribed model standing orders shall be deemed to be adopted in that establishment, and the provisions of Section 9, sub-section (2) of Section 13 and Section 13-A shall apply to such model standing orders as they apply to the standing orders so certified
