Certification schemes Corporate incentives Economic sanctions Procurement Transparency in supply chains

Under Article 17, employers may request, from the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security, a certificate proving that there are no sanctions imposed against the employer as per the Public Registry of Employers with Labour Sanctions (REPSAL).


This certificate could be used by contractors or buyers to ensure that their subcontractors or suppliers are not engaging in abusive labour practices. This certificate effectively operates as a governmental assurance that child labour, and trafficked, forced or enslaved labour have not been found in the employer’s operations.
