Wiener Zeitung: “Taking responsibility for supply chains”
In a guest article in the Wiener Zeitung, Mag. Lukas Andrieu, partner and expert for (international) commercial contract law at ScherbaumSeebacher Rechtsanwälte, talks about the draft of the EU Supply Chain Act, which is supposed to oblige companies to take responsibility for their supply chains in the future.
To whom should the law apply?
What do companies have to pay attention to?
What happens if the contents of the directive are violated?
What is the current status in other member states?
Is the draft already relevant for Austria?
The answers to these questions as well as the most important points of the “Proposal for a Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence” can be found in the complete guest commentary on page 15 of the Wiener Zeitung of June 3, 2022 and here.
