In order to provide some advice for the practical use of verification schemes
these good practice examples intend to show processes of development, pilot
schemes and full applications, and practical experiences made during these processes, including the difficulties which arose and the solutions that were found.

Good practice in socially responsible public procurement - approaches to verification from across europe
This series of case studies describes how organisations from different countries have approached the verification of social criteria at various stages of the tender process. Each study looks into how the compliance of direct suppliers is monitored and how this applies to the rest of the supply chain. It is hoped that procurement professionals and other key stakeholders will be able to use the experiences of their counterparts to develop or improve verification systems in their own authorities.
