The law states that all approved theses must be deposited in a repository and be open access, unless there is a legal impediment or you need to protect them with a patent. Your thesis must then be open access in RiuNet (Real Decreto 99/2011, de 28 de enero, por el que se regulan las enseñanzas oficiales de doctorado).

After reading the thesis you can publish it, but keep in mind that some publishers may request that the work contains some novelty to accept it. In this case, the subsequent publication must bring originality to the original thesis, becoming a "derivative work".
