Modern Slavery Act Compliance

We are able to help your business meet requirements under the Modern Slavery Act

Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act, which came into force in 2015, aims to create transparency within supply chains and encourages organisations to take steps to ensure that modern slavery is not occurring within their own business or within their supply chains.
