Position paper - Proposed amendments to the Forced Labour Regulation

11 May 2023
Responsible Business Conduct

The European Commission proposal to ban products made with forced labour on the Union market comes at a crucial time as companies are integrating due diligence strategies on human and labour rights into their business models. To effectively and efficiently achieve its goals, the Commission should amend the proposal to ensure legislative coherence with due diligence legislation and circular economy rules, harmonisation across Member States, recognition of industry schemes, clarity of its database provisions and a phased-in entry into force, along with other key provisions.
