What is the "Supply Chain Due Diligence Act”

In June 2021, the "Supply Chain Due Diligence Act" was passed in Germany, and an EU law is now being prepared. The new legislation aims to protect human rights throughout the supply chain, even if the suppliers are abroad. The duty of care, therefore, knows no national borders. The new legislation will directly influence suppliers to German companies. It will not only affect the food or automotive industry but all sectors. What can companies expect, and how should they prepare?

As part of the webinar, we will try to answer the following questions:

• What is the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, and what are the goals?

• What are the requirements for companies?

• How can companies design risk management plans?
