Following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act in 2015, AMG Superalloys UK identified the need to respond to Section 54 of the Act, regarding transparency in supply chains.
As part of the global group “AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V.”, AMG Superalloys UK had an existing Supplier Conduct Charter that addresses the issue of modern slavery in the supply chain. The company saw the introduction of the Act as an opportunity to be proactive, and raise the profile of the commitments with their suppliers that had already been established by their charter.
AMG Superalloys UK also has an existing programme of supplier evaluation, which has helped them to build strong relationships with suppliers. However, the company wished to gauge their supplier performance in relation to their charter; specifically in relation to the issue of modern slavery.
