Supply chain transparency: consultation

19 August 2019


Have your say on proposed measures to increase the transparency of business supply chains to prevent modern slavery

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires certain organisations in the UK to publicly report on the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery in their operations and supply chains. In order to strengthen this legislation the government has proposed measures designed to enhance the impact of transparency in supply chains.

The consultation looks at three key areas:

  • content of modern slavery statements
  • transparency, compliance and enforcement
  • public sector supply chains

The consultation welcomes comments from organisations who currently publish a modern slavery statement or may be required to do so in the future, as well as all other interested parties, including consumers, investors, non-profit organisations and charities.
