human rights

Despite our comparatively uncomplicated supply chain, we also of course practice due diligence with regard to human rights. We respect internationally recognized human rights, and are committed to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) of the General Assembly of the United Nations, and to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). DEKRA's Social Standards embody our policy on respect for labor and human rights, and set forth the relevant implementation processes. They comply with the requirements of the UN's Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and of the German National Action Plan (NAP) for Business and Human Rights. We have established standards and processes for our procurement and supply chain management to ensure, among other considerations, that forced and child labor and all forms of exploitation are prevented.
