Firstly, measure 54, which concerns a legislative modification scheduled for 2012 and aims at the reinforcement of the intervention capacity of the Comissão para a Igualdade e contra a Discriminação Racial (CICDR) [Commission for Equality and Against Racial Discrimination]: to approve the proposal for alteration of the legal framework regarding infractions related to discriminatory practices based on nationality or ethnic origin, so as to confer greater efficiency to its respective procedures, namely by establishing mediation as a standard procedural stage, fixing deadlines for the end of the investigation, and simplifying procedures. Another measure, 57, concerns the disaggregation of statistical data related to racial discrimination, by gender, of the infractions by general discrimination in employment, collected by the Autoridade para as Condições do Trabalho (ACT) [Working Conditions Agency].
