Several governments have implemented regulations, forcing importers to have a Due Diligence System (DDS) in place. Control Union Certifications has the knowledge and network to support companies with the implementation.
The length and complexity of supply chains makes it impossible and unaffordable for importers and companies to ensure every business in a supply chain is verified. A due diligence system helps importers and companies to identify risks of, for example, forced labour (UK Modern Slavery act) and illegal logging (EU timber regulation).
Control Union Certifications has supported and implemented many due diligence systems, helping customers identify risks as well as implementing mitigating measures.
Control Union Certifications is also recognised as a monitoring organisation by the European Commission to support EU importers of wood and to comply with EU timber regulations.
