The NDB OPERA Standard explains what ethical recruitment means in practice, and what labour recruiters need to demonstrate to become NDB OPERA voluntary certified Ambassadors (recruiters).

  1. Respect for Laws, Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work

  2. Respect for Ethical and Professional Conduct

  3. Prohibition of Recruitment Fees to Jobseekers

  4. Respect for Freedom of Movement

  5. Respect for Transparency of Terms and Conditions of Employment

  6. Respect for Confidentiality and Data Protection

  7. Respect for Access to Remedy

The NDB OPERA Standard was developed in consultation with a wide range of stakeholders. 

It is based on existing international human rights instruments, ILO Conventions and standards, ILO’s General principles and operational guidelines for fair recruitment, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,

as well as related codes of conducts and best practice from the recruitment industry, including World Employment Confederation Code of Conduct.
