Guidance for policy / legislation implementation

Country / jurisdiction

Date of publishing



This guide was developed for public administration bodies, especially in the Catalan region, on how to include the protection of human rights in their public procurement processes, in particular vis-a-vis suppliers beyond the already recognized clauses.

The purpose of the guide is to promote a more just, sustainable, and social world where human rights violations do not go unpunished. The guide is intended for the use of the local administration of Catalonia, including municipal companies with public majority participation. This does not prevent the guide from becoming a reference text for the other local entities in Spain.
