Updated Guidance on Modern Slavery Act 2015

By December 11, 2017Uncategorized

If you are a commercial organisation that supplies goods or services from or to the UK, and has a global turnover above £36 million, you are required to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement each financial year.

Smaller organisations can volunteer to publish statements.

The statement needs to include how you have actively worked to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking in your business or supply chains, or to state if you have taken no such action.

Please follow the link below to the Home Offices’ updated guidance: Transparency in Supply Chains. Although it’s a 46-page read, the guide sets out practical steps for business who are required to make a statement required by section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
