Efforts to Prohibit Slavery and Human Trafficking in our Supply Chain
MSC is committed to responsible corporate citizenship and to eliminating all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery from our primary supply chain. We expect our suppliers to operate their businesses with the utmost integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including those addressing human trafficking and modern slavery, collectively “Laws”.
To that end, MSC strives to be in compliance with section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (See MSC UK Policy here) and the relevant sections of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). MSC flows down the Laws to those suppliers providing goods to it through either a Supplier Agreement, MSC’s Supplier Terms and Conditions, and/or MSC’s Annual Flowdown Letter (See Annual Flowdown Letter here). Regardless of the contractual avenue, MSC requires that its suppliers agree to: (1) if required, the requirements of Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FARS”) 52.222-50 and 52.222-56; and (2) warrant and represent that no products furnished to MSC will have been laundered or produced by sweatshop labor, forced labor, convict labor, indentured labor under penal sanction, abusive forms of child labor, exploitation of children, or any other form of human trafficking. When any supplier non-conformance with MSC’s modern slavery and human trafficking policies is found, MSC requires each such supplier to perform corrective actions, and if the non-conformance persists, MSC will cease to do business with the supplier.
To ensure an understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, MSC provides training to relevant members of our staff. The training includes a detailed review of the MSC Supplier Agreement, Supplier Terms and Conditions, and Supplier Handbook.
