Negotiated procedure for a low/middle value contract - Trainers’ manual for inspection authorities


Negotiated procedure
The objective of this service is the development of a Trainers’ Manual on the safeguards for working third-country nationals contained in EU law. The manual should target trainers responsible for the training of future or appointed labour inspectors and inspection authorities of other monitoring bodies (e.g. health and safety, tax, social security).

Open until :

18 November 2022 17:00
Publication date
04 November 2022

The trainers’ manual will offer a uniformed and basic training for labour inspectors on the protective elements of the Employer Sanctions Directive (hereinafter, ESD) and the Seasonal Workers Directive (hereinafter, SWD) and, where relevant, the Single Permit Directive (SPD), but also on the key labour rights of other categories of migrant workers at heightened risk of exploitation. The training manual will be of generic nature, flexible to reflect the different national contexts, notwithstanding the different mandates of labour inspectors in different EU Member States. It will indicate which information and support labour inspectors could give to workers.

Technical and professional capacity

The contractor must propose at least one key expert who meets the below criteria:

  • University degree (at least BA or equivalent)
  • Proven professional and/or academic experience of at least five (5) years in the area of human rights and/or labour rights, having participated in at least one (1) project or report or publication in the area of labour exploitation and/or labour inspections.
  • Proven professional experience of at least two (2) years in developing training materials (training manuals, guidelines, checklist etc).
  • Excellent knowledge of English (Common European Framework of Reference - CEF - level C1)

No documents proving the fulfilment of these criteria are requested at this stage.
