In addition to supporting governments, civil society and migrant workers, another important component of the IRIS initiaitve is IRIS Certification - a global voluntary certification scheme for private recruitment agencies involved in international recruitment. IRIS Certification was created by IOM together with a coalition of partners from government, the labour movement, business and human rights organizations, international organizations, and the private sector, but operates independently of IOM under the IRIS Certification Scheme Manager.
Certification is voluntary and only available to private recruitment agencies. To become an ‘IRIS certified labour recruiter’, applicants need to demonstrate that their management system conforms to the requirements of the IRIS Standard.
