GUIDANCE ON DUE DILIGENCE TO HELP EU COMPANIES TO ADDRESS THE RISK OF FORCED LABOUR IN THEIR OPERATIONS AND SUPPLY CHAINS

On 13 July, a news release from the EU says that the guidance will enhance companies’ capacity to eradicate forced labour from their value chains by providing concrete, practical advice on how to identify, prevent, mitigate and address its risk.  It explains the practical aspects of due diligence and provides an overview of EU and international instruments on responsible business conduct that are relevant for combatting forced labour. The EU has already put in place mandatory standards in some sectors and actively promotes the effective implementation of international standards on responsible business conduct.
