Sustainable Development Goals


The Labour Market Regulatory Authority was established on 31st May 2006, when His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, The King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, issued a law regulating the labour market, which states: The Authority shall undertake all the tasks and powers necessary to regulate the labour market in the Kingdom, and regulate expatriate employees' work permits, manpower agencies' licenses, recruitment offices, and expatriate employers' permits to conduct work in the Kingdom.

This came as an extension of His Majesty's reform project, which included a core project represented in reforming the labour market. This project also played a major role in achieving the Kingdom's policies and reforming the labour market, making it necessary for the Labour Market Regulatory Authority to participate in achieving the sustainable development goals approved by the United Nations.
