The Supply Chain Act, promulgated on 16 July 2021, applies from 1 January 2023 to companies of any legal form with, as a rule, at least 3,000 employees domestically. From 1 January 2024, the Supply Chain Act will apply to companies with 1,000 or more employees in Germany. Since the affected (large) companies control their supply chains and in some cases even have to transfer due diligence obligations to direct suppliers, it can be assumed that they will contractually pass on the new due diligence obligations under the Supply Chain Act to their suppliers. The Supply Chain Act will thus also have an impact on small and medium-sized enterprises.
