AHK-DIHK - Insights Webinar | German Supply Chain Law

What companies should know and prepare for

Tuesday, 13 April 2021, 3-4 pm

After years of deliberation, the German Federal Government has passed the draft of a "Law on Corporate Due Diligence in Supply Chains" on March 3rd, 2021. The aim of the so-called Due Diligence or Supply Chain Law ("Lieferkettengesetz") is to safeguard legal clarity for businesses and to strengthen companies' overall compliance. Simultaneously, the EU is deliberating similar legislation. Against the backdrop of recent tensions regarding companies' supply chains in China, the speakers will provide an overview of what German companies must know to prepare for the expected changes in an ever more complex legal business framework. 


Our speakers will provide an exclusive overview of practical aspects of the planned German Law on Corporate Due Diligence in Supply Chains ("Gesetz über die unternehmerischen Sorgfaltspflichten in Lieferketten").
