Under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), all business enterprises have a responsibility to respect human rights. Mandatory human rights due diligence (mHRDD) regimes are already in place, or in development, across a growing number of jurisdictions, including the EU.
This meeting will look at how the new mHRDD requirements are, or will, impact businesses, and how the Work in Fishing Convention (c188) is being implemented on UK vessels. We will also hear about using the PAS 1550:2017 voluntary code of practice in the due diligence and risk assessment process.
