IRIS is a social compliance scheme that is designed to promote ethical international recruitment.  It works by defining and setting a benchmark for ethical recruitment (the IRIS Standard), and through establishing a voluntary certification scheme for ethical labour recruiters, and a compliance and monitoring mechanism.  IRIS is a due diligence tool for businesses, governments and workers.
