Contract performance clauses for safeguarding basic human rights in the supply chain
The special contract performance clauses for safeguarding basic human rights in the supply chain are recommended to be used when procuring high risk products.
The contract clauses are based on the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for responsible business conduct. They are to be used in accordance with the EU principles of public procurement, such as the proportionality principle. In line with the proportionality principle, we therefore recommend you to use the special contract clauses when purchasing products from the high-risk list.
