Registry of slavery & human trafficking statements under UK Modern Slavery Act

Update: Sep 2016 statement by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre and seven other organizations on the need for a transparency, free and open-access registry.

On 26 March 2015 the UK passed the landmark Modern Slavery Act

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is currently maintaining a public track record of companies' statements under the Act.

Download current list of statements: 391 as of July 2016 

If your company has produced a statement to comply with this legislation that you would like to appear on the above PDF, please send it to Danielle McMullan ([email protected]).

Context

Section 54 requires every organisation with a total global annual turnover of £36m that is carrying out a business (or part of a business) in the UK to produce a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year.  The statement must contain details of the steps that the organisation has taken in that year to identify and eradicate modern slavery from both its own business and its supply chain (or state that no steps have been taken, if this is the case).  The statement must be signed by a director and there must be a link to it from the company's homepage.

In July 2016, the Resource Centre with other key stakeholders - the ETIAnti-Slavery InternationalFLEXKnowTheChainHumanity UnitedFreedom Fund and CORE Coalition - issued a statement emphasizing that a transparent, free and open access registry is critical and urgent.  The organizations are currently in discussions on how to make this a reality and will provide an update in September.
