The registry of accredited firms in the construction sector in Spain: an administrative instrument for risk-prevention control
Áreas de investigación
  • Ingeniería civil y arquitectura
This research provides evidence as to the level of compliance and observance with the Registry of Accredited Firms among Spanish public administrations. The REA was established for the purpose of risk-prevention control and is defined in the legislative framework of Law 32/2006 regulating subcontracting in the Construction Sector. This research brings to light a situation of ?bureaucratic double-standards? with regard to all the demands and requirements that firms within the private sector are expected to fulfil. On the basis of a quantitative analysis of the data obtained from public entities registered with the REA, it was decided to limit the study to those public authorities defined as: city councils and provincial councils. The inscriptions in the REA of both types of public authorities were, therefore, analysed at a nationwide level, specifically, the 50 provinces and 2 autonomous cities that form part of the 17 Autonomous Regions of which the national territory of Spain is composed. Data management tools that are available to the public were used in conjunction with publicly available documentation, and particularly the List of Employment Positions [Relación de Puestos de Trabajo] (Spanish acronym: RPT) of the corresponding public authorities under study, so as to compare and to validate the data and the level of reliability. The results highlight the bureaucratic hurdles that private firms in the Construction Sector have to negotiate, as opposed to the scant or even null compliance with the REA by Public Administrations.
