Abstract: The term 'offset' refers to a set of mechanisms inserted in a modality of compensated trade that seeks to insert counterparts in the commercial transaction from the seller to the buyer. In developing countries, such practice is in some cases institutionalised as policies, which represent an outlet in the acquisition of technologies from developed countries. In this context, the international technology transfer occurs in an unstable way in certain populations, with the proposal of modifying work situations and increasing the performance of the organisations to which they are destined. Then, the anthropotechnological analysis can be an adequate field of analysis. The objective of this work is to propose a framework capable of analysing the anthropotechnological perspective in the workplace, modified by the international technology transfer promoted by the offset policy.

Keywords: international technology transfer; ITT; anthropotechnology; offset policy.
