“The state government is stepping up its fight against child labor: in the future, tombstones from China, India, the Philippines and Vietnam may only be erected in North Rhine-Westphalia if they have been produced with reasonable probability without the worst forms of child labor. Commenting on today’s Cabinet decision, Minister Laumann said: “The ban on building tombstones from the worst forms of child labor came into force in May 2015. We now make nails with our heads and make sure that the theory of law finally becomes lived practice. Human dignity is inviolable. This must apply even more so with regard to the problem of child labor. That is why we want to put a clear seal on the worst forms of exploitation. ” Holthoff-Pförtner will now initiate the procedure for the recognition of certification bodies. ”
XertifiX welcomes the step of the state government extraordinarily that in NRW grave stones from unfair production will be effectively excluded in the future!
