TÜV SÜD responded

Thank you for e-mail of 30. April 2021.

We appreciate the important work your organization is doing to improve labor and working conditions around the globe and we understand the concerns related to the Xinjiang area.

Our audits follow clearly defined international standards and guidelines and we only do business with companies when we are convinced they respect human rights.

In the Xinjiang area, TÜV SÜD China conducted just a few social audits (such as BSCI) and the last ones took place in 2019. We are not accepting new orders for social audits there.
