In view of the resistance from business to the planned supply chain law, the chairwoman and treasurer of XertifiX have sent a letter to Federal Minister Dr. Gerd Müller in which we are backing the minister against all obstacles to pass the supply chain law agreed in the coalition agreement before the end of this legislative period.
We keep hearing legitimate doubts from our licensees as to how companies that comply with their due diligence and, for example, have their supply chains checked by XertifiX, should compete against other companies that do nothing of the kind. There is an imbalance in the market economy that needs to be remedied. A supply chain law is a very suitable instrument for this! It is not for nothing that large companies such as the Rewe Group, Tchibo or Nestlé stand behind such a law. We expect that given the importance of the new law for the entire German economy, the German Minister for Economic Affairs Peter Altmeier will also give up his resistance and proactively support the law.
