The guidelines have been prepared in consultation with a number of different stakeholders and is intended as an awareness, business risk management and practical prevention tool.

The guide is designed as a practical online tool including checklists, which companies can apply to conduct risk assessment, risk management and prevention.The guidelines encourages self-regulation and action and provides measures which companies can apply in order to avoid unintentionally being associated with cases of hidden forced labour, which may result in serious reputational damage and police investigations.
