OECD Public Consultation on Due Diligence Guidance for Supply Chain Issues


Reading time ( words)

The Organization for Economic and Cooperative Development (OECD) is currently developing a general OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct and Companion to the Due Diligence Guidance to provide practical support to companies on the implementation of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. Both the U.S. Dodd-Frank and the recent EU legislation reference the OECD Guidelines. The guidance can also serve as a reference for stakeholders to understand the measures businesses are recommended to take with regard to managing their impacts with regard to issues such as conflict minerals.

IPC’s E-30 Conflict Minerals due diligence committee is reviewing the proposed guidance and will advise IPC regarding the consultation.

Proposed EU Legislation Receives Industry Support

Given the wide variety of opinions and proposed amendments on the conflict minerals legislation, it is hard to predict what will be included in the final legislation or when it will be passed into law. IPC will continue to stay involved, advocate for our members and keep you informed.
