The new German Supply Chain Diligence Act (LKSG, as its abbreviation in German), imposes extensive new obligations on companies regarding human rights along the supply chain. The LKSG has been in effect since January 1, 2023, and creates an urgent need for action for obligated companies.

Companies must implement the requirements in their compliance systems and make the corresponding internal adjustments to ensure compliance with human rights in their supply chains.
