Qatar: Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy launches Workers' Welfare Standards, initiates internal and external monitoring for 2022 World Cup contracts

Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) is the entity responsbile for overseeing all construction and infrastructure projects for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In 2013, the SC published a Workers' Charter which outlined principles related to the protection of workers' health, well-being, safety and security. In 2014, SC launched their Workers' Welfare Standards, which are mandatory for contractors working on SC projects and require contractors to ensure compliance by their subcontractors. The SC commenced their internal auditing in the same year, the results of which they release in the form of worker welfare reports on a semi-annual basis. The Standards were updated in 2016 , when the SC announced joint inspections and independent monitoring for their World Cup contracts.

Impactt Ltd, a global consultancy firm, is the external monitor for all auditing and inspection processes of the SC's Workers’ Welfare Standards that are incorporated into all 2022 World Cup contracts. Impactt released their first Annual External Compliance report in April 2017 and the second in February 2018.

Building and Wood Worker's International (BWI), the global trade union for construction workers, is conducting joint labour and accommodation inspections. The first joint annual report on joint inspections was published in January 2018. The second was published in February 2019.
