2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum


OECD responsible business conduct (RBC) standards recommend companies map their supply chains, and to identify and respond to risks. They also recommend carrying out independent third party checks or audits to ensure integrity and accountability of supply chains. In the early days of the health crisis, these audits were either postponed or cancelled, all the while as risks changed with disruptions that reconfigured supply chains. Industry associations operating in various supply chains have since developed innovative approaches to maintain some level of verification. This session will explore how established RBC procedures have been adapted to meet the challenges created by the pandemic.
