Better Work’s Compliance Assessment Tool (CAT) is used by Better Work Enterprise Advisors to assess compliance with core international labour standards and national labour law.
The CAT covers core international labour standards and working conditions. The first two levels—clusters and compliance points—are set globally. The third level consists of questions that reflect the local context. This classification structure allows for a consistent approach globally, while ensuring that questions address compliance with national legal requirements and established benchmarks.
Better Work Jordan has adapted its CAT for the three non-garment sectors – chemicals, engineering and plastics. The adaptation comes in context to Better Work Jordan’s expansion to non-garment sectors under the EU’s simplified rules of origin initiative for Jordan. The sectors were selected based on their potential to benefit from the EU’s trade agreement and in consultation with national and international stakeholders.
