The IRIS certification scheme assesses labour recruiters’ compliance with the IRIS Standard and relevant international human and labour rights instruments. The Standard provides the operational benchmarks for compliance with ethical recruitment principles. Labour recruiters compliant with the Standard will receive IRIS certification via the certification scheme. The compliance assessments are conducted by IRIS trained auditors using tailor-made methodology and tools. In addition to a “front end” assessment and certification process, a monitoring and compliance system supports certified labour recruiters in maintaining their commitment to ethical recruitment. IOM guided capacity building and training helps labour recruiters to improve their management systems and recruitment processes.
