The Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations in Supply Chains (German: Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz, LkSG) or short Supply Chain Act obliges companies to analyze the human rights and environmental due diligence obligations within their supply chain in an appropriate manner and to assess their risks. The scope of application of the Supply Chain Act generally includes companies that have their head office, principal place of business, administrative headquarters or statutory headquarters in Germany. Both privatesector companies and publicly owned companies are affected. The law requires regular proactive analyses and appropriate addressing of risks in the company's own business area and with direct suppliers (suppliers with whom a contractual relationship exists). The Supply Chain Act provides for severe fines and sanctions if the due diligence requirements set out in the law are not complied with.

Implement Supply Chain Act obligations with compliance software


It can be assumed that smaller and medium-sized companies in or outside Germany will also be affected by the German obligations. Institutions to which the Supply Chain Act applies will pass on the its requirements to their suppliers via contractual provisions. As one of the key preventive measures, the Supply Chain Act explicitly requires that direct suppliers comply with the company’s human rights and environmental expectations and, in turn, address them along their supply chain. In the event of substantial indications, the obligation also extends to indirect suppliers (so-called cause-related due diligence).

Protection for whistleblowers

As a result of the EU directive, these so-called “whistleblowers“ require special protection and should be encouraged to report such violations—without fear of direct or indirect reprisals. Against this background, the European Union issued the Whistleblower Protection Directive in 2019.
