Due Diligence Guidance

OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct

Due diligence is at the core of responsible business conduct. The OECD has issued Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct to provide practical and clear explanations for implementing due diligence as prescribed in the OECD Guidelines. Businesses can also use the Guidance to respond to due diligence expectations of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles Concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy.

The Guidance is available in several languages on the OECD's website.
