According to our partner association VFI (German Importers), on 12 February 2021 the agreement on the planned German Supply Chain Act was presented at the press conference of the Ministries for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) and Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Companies are expected to hold their direct suppliers very closely to account, but also to keep an eye on the entire supply chain. If a company becomes aware of an irregularity in the supply chain, it should be committed to take remedial action. According to the ministers, the aim is to combat child labour and paltry wages in the future, but also to ensure greater environmental protection. In a phased plan, the Supply Chain Act is to apply to companies with 3,000 or more employees starting in 2023, followed by companies with 1,000 or more employees as of 2024. Liability under civil law is off the table and will be replaced by a list of offences and fines. Moreover, such companies can be excluded from public tenders.
According to reports from take-e-way customers, Amazon is currently informing its merchants regarding the EU Regulation on Product Safety (known as “Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 on Market Surveillance and Conformity of Products”), which will take effect on 16 July 2021. Owing to the large number of requirements, we recommend that you should already take action right now. In this respect, you will not be left on your own, because we can actively support you with our solutions regarding the Market Surveillance Ordinance.
With the kind permission of Duales System Deutschland GmbH (DSD), we would like to inform you regarding DSD’s assessment of the use of the Green Dot in France. The “Green Dot” is a symbol that has been particularly well known for 30 years now. It signals to consumers that the producer of the labelled packaged product is participating in the financing of an authorised national system for the collection and recycling of packaging and is thus clear evidence of producer responsibility. To ensure the free movement of goods within the EU, 31 European organisations under the PRO Europe umbrella have agreed on the Green Dot as a valid symbol. According to DSD. “information letters” are currently in circulation concerning the continued use of the “Green Dot” trademark in France. From DSD’s perspective, much of this information is factually incomplete, partly incorrect and confusing. DSD would therefore like to provide you with some facts.
