SUPPLY CHAIN DUE DILIGENCE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL HARM: GERMANY AND UK COMPARED

On 28 June, an article from Burges Salmon reported that Germany is the latest country to legislate for increased corporate responsibility over global supply chains. The article examines the German legislative measures, and how they compare with its UK equivalent, the Modern Slavery Act 2015.  The comparison clearly shows that the scope of the German Act is, in nearly every respect, broader than the UK Act, and that companies which already comply with the UK Act are not automatically in compliance with the German Act.
