Gap analysis on the German Supply Chain Law

Supply Chain Law: Find out the current status of your company with a gap analysis | TÜV Rheinland

Identify your degree of maturity and the need for action with respect to the law.

The adopted Supply Chain Act, legally known as the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, places high demands on the management of internationally operating companies. It creates the framework conditions for improving human rights and environmental aspects along the entire supply chain. The law will be binding starting in 2023 for companies in all sectors with at least 3,000 employees in Germany and starting in 2024 for companies with at least 1,000 employees in Germany.

Compliance with the new legal regulations can mean a significant allocation of resources in your company. A gap analysis helps you to reduce your costs and effort and to implement the legal requirements quickly and efficiently. Our experts assess in detail the maturity of your existing approaches and identify your very specific need for action.

As a competent and experienced partner, we will support you along the way. We draw on sound practical experience in the field and have in-depth industry knowledge, including in the retail and food industries but also in the textile, electronics, automotive and the pharmaceutical industry.
