Swiss counter-proposal to the RBI (VSoTr): Follow these steps for implementation

  • August 24, 2023

Please note: this webinar is in English.

Since 2023, the counter-proposal to the Responsible Business Initiative has come into force in Switzerland with the “Ordinance on Due Diligence and Transparency in relation to Minerals and Metals from Conflict-Affected Areas and Child Labour” (DDTrO, in German VSoTr).

As a result, Swiss companies are legally obliged to understand whether they have to comply with due diligence and reporting obligations regarding child labour and conflict minerals. In this webinar, we will provide guidance to assess the applicability to your company. Furthermore, we will outline the key steps to ensure implementation of the law.

In this webinar we provide actionable answers to the following questions:

  • What are the first steps to assess whether VSoTr is applicable to you?
  • How do you get started with the implementation of the requirements?
  • What best practice examples are there for an efficient implementation of the obligations?

There is also an informative Q&A at the end.
