JBCE published the position paper on the Commission’s proposal for a Forced Labour Product Ban


On 30th November, JBCE Trade Policy committee and CSR committee submitted it's initial comments on the Commission’s proposal for a Forced Labour Product Ban. 

JBCE warmly welcomes the EU’s effort to tackle forced labour, in line with its Treaties, in the context of the international community’s commitment to eradicate this scourge by 2030.
The specific objective of this proposal being the effective prohibition of the placing and making available on the EU market and the export from the EU of products made with forced labour, the important impact on economic operators should be reflected by a high level of legal certainty for companies to be able to properly comply with the requirements and to avoid unnecessary red tape in daily business operations.

WIth taking these mind, JBCE makes initial concrete recommendations; 

1) Increased legal certainty regarding the requirements

2) Coherence with the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD)

3) Proportionate requirements for companies
