SEPE, together with the Public Employment Services of the Autonomous Communities, form the National Employment System. This system assumes the functions of the defunct National Employment Institute (INEM) since 2003. From this state structure, measures and actions for employment are promoted, designed and developed, whose execution is decentralized, adjusted to the different territorial realities.
