Joint Statement on reforming the EU customs regulations

We urge MEPs to push for the European Commission to introduce amendments to ensure that EU customs data regulations supplement efforts to create mandatory human rights due diligence regulations for companies operating in the EU. There is growing momentum and support for binding regulations in addressing transparency and due diligence in corporate supply chains, including public access to customs data. In April 2017, the Development Committee of the European Parliament’s EU Flagship Initiative on Garments recommended binding regulations on companies’ human rights due diligence responsibilities in their global supply chains.
