Members of the Development Committee of the European Union (EU) Parliament are urging the European Commission to propose binding human rights rules for all the players in the apparel supply chain. The Members of the Committee have suggested a series of measures including: a binding due diligence system based on OECD guidelines, which should particularly focus on women's and children's rights and acknowledge existing national initiatives, once they have been audited; conditional trade preferences, with tariff relief for proven sustainable-produced textiles; the enforcement of labor rights and standards through the promotion of the right to association and collective bargaining; and clothing labels making the “social impact of production” visible on clothes to increase consumer awareness. These measures are to help avoid other tragedies like the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh in 2013, which killed more than 1,100 workers. The proposals will be discussed by the EU Parliament in plenary session on April 26. The EU imports nearly half the world's total clothing production, and manufacturing mostly takes place in emerging countries. According to World Trade Organization (WTO) figures, more than 70 percent of EU textiles and clothing imports come from Asia, with China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Indonesia the largest producers.
