Child and forced labour in supply chains present serious and material risks to companies and industries. To help mitigate these risks, the U.S. Department of Labor presents Comply Chain: Business Tools for Labor Compliance in Global Supply Chains.

The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2005 mandated ILAB to create a set of standards and practices to reduce forced and child labour in the production of goods.

The app targets companies and industry groups seeking to develop robust social compliance systems for their global production. Comply Chain provides practical, step-by-step guidance on eight critical elements of social compliance, and is designed for companies that do not have a social compliance system in place or those needing to strengthen their existing systems. These eight critical elements of social compliance are: Engage Stakeholders and Partners; Assess Risks And Impacts; Develop a Code of Conduct; Communicate and Train across your Supply Chain; Monitor Compliance; Remediate Violations; Independent Review; and Report Performance.

Each step has a module that includes learning objectives, key terms, topics for exploration, and additional resources. The app provides general information about why companies should implement compliance systems, including relevant laws and regulations. The app also contains many examples of specific good practices that companies, industry groups, and multi-stakeholder initiatives have put in place in these eight areas. ILAB encourages companies to engage with each of the individual modules to ensure a comprehensive system.

A wide range of partners and experts contributed content for Comply Chain, including National Academy of Sciences and Center for Reflection, Education and Action, which carried out the initial research.
