The Supply Chain Act: In France and Great Britain it exists already. In Germany it will come. "For complex supply chains, the economy needs clear minimum requirements. This protects the committed companies and puts pressure on those who take the subject lightly," emphasizes Ralf Duester, CEO of the Bochum-based SCM software provider Setlog.

While there is still a debate in Germany about the size of companies that need to have effective human rights protection in place, Duester advises companies in the fashion industry in particular to ensure that they have the right software, including an early warning system for violations and expiry dates. Setlog offers "OSCA Vendor Compliance Management", so that companies can digitize processes, make their supply chains transparent and have access to all audit data and certificates at any time, regardless of location. OSCA is live in 92 countries. "We have long since developed the technology for transparent supply chains. There are many examples of how companies do the best they can to ensure that there are no violations of human rights and environmental standards in their chain," explains Duester. Those who use the solution make their supply chain digital, more resilient, faster and more cost-effective. Setlog customers include KiK and Adler in Germany and Cole Haan and Global Brands Group in the USA. Bringing transparency into the supply chain is one of the six central measures that companies will have to implement in the future. The other five are:

• Risk assessment for people and the environment

• Countermeasures in case of violations of human rights and environmental laws

• Establishment of complaint bodies for affected persons

• Avoidance of child labor

• Adaptation of living wages to the respective country of production
