SIRE and RUTEC gather certain information to control the foreign population. However, there are certain differences between them, among others, such as: (1) the entities in charge of each of the registration systems; and (2) RUTEC going beyond the notification of hiring or contract termination of foreign workers, since labor migration policy will be constructed at least in part based on the information collected.
