Based on a government guidance document and feed-back from discussions with the Modern Slavery Act Task Force, the following should be part of any company’s statement.

  • The organisation’s structure, its business and its supply chains.
  • Its policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking.
  • Its due diligence processes in relation to slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
  • The parts of its business and supply chains where there is a risk of slavery and human trafficking taking place, and the steps it has taken to assess and manage that risk, which might include actual site visits.
  • Its effectiveness in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its business or supply chains, measured against such performance indicators as it considers appropriate.
  • The training and awareness-building regarding slavery and human trafficking provided to its staff.
