Independent workers’ welfare monitor appointed as edition two of SC Standards takes effect
The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has appointed Impactt Ltd as an independent third party External Monitor to further bolster the auditing and inspections process of the SC Workers’ Welfare Standards (WW Standards), a set of enforceable principles and regulations which are incorporated into all contracts for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. The second edition of the WW Standards...sets out the SC’s requirements regarding the recruitment, employment, living and working conditions of everyone engaged on an SC project...[T]he new requirements...are now in the process of being further embedded throughout the supply chain in a series of workshops with contractors and sub-contractors...[T]he internationally recognised organisation Verité...worked with the SC since early this year to help appoint the External Monitor. "The scope requires the external monitor to continuously review and assess the extent to which SC contractors and sub-contractors – including their recruitment agents - and the SC itself are in compliance with the Standards."...said Dan Viederman, CEO of Verité...The addition of the independent third party External Monitor will mean independent audits of the SC and its contractors take place on a regular basis, completing the four-tier auditing process.
