Regulation of global supply chains

April 18, 2016

One of the discussions taking place at the International Labour Conference (ILC)in June 2016 concerns the regulation of global supply chains. As well as the need for regulation in addition to existing international labour standards, there is a great diversity of arrangements which fall into global supply chain within and between different industry sectors.

The discussion at ILC will be assisted by a report which will identify discussion areas and will develop conclusions to direct efforts in this area over the next 3-5 years.

As part of its response, the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) is asking for information from employers who are “brands” producing from or “buyers” buying from producers or sellers not in Australia (ie part of their global supply chain).

The IOE has distributed information and an anonymous survey which seek respondents’ views about a number of the conclusions in the draft of the ILO’s supply chain discussion report. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes and needs to be returned by 30 April 2016.
