EU COMMISSION PROPOSES TO PROHIBIT PRODUCTS MADE WITH FORCED LABOUR ON THE EU MARKET

On 14 September, a news release advised that the proposal covers all products, namely those made in the EU for domestic consumption and exports, and imported goods, without targeting specific companies or industries.  National authorities in the Member States will implement the prohibition through a robust, risk-based enforcement approach.  The proposal now needs to be discussed and agreed by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union before it can enter into force, and will apply 24 months after its entry into force.
