WITHAM (JUNE 13TH,  2017) - Inspectorate International Limited, a Bureau Veritas Group Company, announced today that it has published its first statement to comply with the new legislation covering the Modern Slavery Act. The statement outlines the steps Inspectorate has taken, and is planning to take to ensure that Modern Slavery does not feature in its supply chain.

Modern Slavery is defined in the Government’s Modern Slavery Strategy published in November 2014 by the then Home Secretary Theresa May as encompassing slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. 

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 will ensure victims receive the protection and support they deserve.

"This statement sets out Inspectorate’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains," said Richard Downs, Senior Vice President, Metals & Minerals Trade, Inspectorate International Limited.

"As part of the Commodities industry, the Company recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking," continued Richard.
