Securing a strong and effective EU regulation for supply chain due diligence to stop complicity in funding conflicts, CIDSE Briefing, November 2015 (Available in EN-FR)
In May 2015, the European Parliament voted to require all European manufacturers and importers of components and final products containing four minerals, such as mobile phones or cars, to check their supply chains to make sure they don’t fuel conflicts. During the current Trialogue negotiations between the European Parliament, Council of the European Union and European Commission, European Member States and EU political leaders have a historic opportunity to secure this key achievement as well as to further strengthen the European Parliament text. In this briefing, CIDSE makes 7 recommendations to European Member States and EU political leaders for a strong and effective EU regulation.
