EU Expands Forced Labor Laws

Whitepapers
February 9, 2024

With every passing year, more countries enact laws requiring companies to perform "human rights due diligence" on their supply chains- and members of the European Union are leading the way. That push began in 2015 with the U.K. Modern Slavery Act, since followed by similar legislation in Switzerland, France, and the EU as a whole.

Now the due diligence community has two more additions to this family: the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (abbreviated in German as LKSG) and the Norwegian Supply Chain Transparency Act. How do these two laws fit within that greater push against forced labor in Europe? How can your compliance program integrate them into your existing efforts? This white paper tries to answer those questions.
