Update on Forced Labor Legal Developments in Europe

March 2024
Region: Europe

The EU has been working on its own set of regulations prohibiting products made with forced labor from entering the EU market. This alert updates an earlier alert and preliminary guidance we issued on this subject.

Negotiations on a proposal for a regulation of general scope, presented in September 2022, have now been concluded. However, with limited time left before the EU elections, formal approval may not occur until fall of 2024.
