Our Standards

After winning the right to host the FIFA World Cup 2022™, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) developed a set of Workers' Welfare Standards to keep our workers safe and healthy.

These standards demand that all individuals contributing to the delivery of SC projects be treated with dignity and respect, in accordance with universally accepted principles of human rights.

These standards cover each worker's entire employment journey – from recruitment to repatriation – and are enforced by a robust, four-tier audit system that includes our third-party independent monitor, Impactt Ltd.

As a living document, these standards will continue to be reviewed regularly to ensure the health, safety and dignity of our workers are always protected.
