Public consultation – OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct

Deadline for response: 9 February 2017

The OECD is currently developing a general Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct to provide practical support to companies on the implementation of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. T

he draft Guidance contains plain language explanations of the due diligence recommendations and associated provisions in the Guidelines and can be used by companies in any sector of the economy.

In this context, the OECD is making two draft documents available for public comment:

  • OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct
  • OECD Due Diligence Companion – a “living document” containing examples, tips and good practices that could be regularly updated with further examples as the Due Diligence Guidance is implemented

This document contains version 2.1 of the draft Due Diligence Guidance.
