Since the effective date of California’s Transparency in Supply Chains Act in 2012, many companies have struggled with understanding what constitutes compliance. The law went into effect with no guidance from the California Department of Justice, which is tasked with enforcement.
However, the DOJ intends to issue a guidance document on compliance in the coming weeks. Hopefully, DOJ will take into account what companies are already doing.
DOJ also intends to send notices to all California businesses that it considers covered by SB 657. The notices will detail what the law requires.
