Modern Slavery Registry powered by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre

Our Modern Slavery Registry has moved: see www.modernslaveryregistry.org.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre maintains a public track record of companies' statements under the UK Modern Slavery Act. The updated Registry currently holds over 2000 statements from companies in 27 sectors, headquartered in 31 countries. 

Users can:

  • Find out what companies are doing to eradicate modern slavery from their operations and supply chains
  • Search statements by company name, sector and country of HQ
  • See what countries statements are coming from using a dynamic map
  • Submit statements which will then be reviewed by a researcher to be added to the Registry (a feature requested by companies and civil society alike)
  • Download all the data from the Registry in one click  

If your company has produced a statement to comply with this legislation that you would like to appear in our registry, please send it to Patricia Carrier ([email protected]).

What people are saying about the Modern Slavery Act Registry

This Registry is a fantastic resource for everyone in business, civil society and government wanting to eradicate modern slavery. Walk Free's millions of activists can now use the Registry to review companies' efforts and we will be highlighting the better-informed company statements as examples of analysis and commitment to be emulated.

Joanna Ewart-James, Director, Walk Free

 

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre provides the only independent, credible, free, open, and accessible Central Registry for Modern Slavery Statements that is accountable to the public interest. The Resource Centre is exactly the right home for this, because its primary purpose is to share knowledge, research and evidence to drive improved practice on business and human rights, and to expose bad practice so that lessons can be learned.That’s in the spirit of Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act and that’s why the Ethical Trading Initiative strongly endorses this Registry and is encouraging our corporate members to upload their statements on this site. ETI feels it is vital that there is an independent platform that enables key stakeholders to review and analyse Modern Slavery Statements to help drive a race to the top.   

Cindy Berman, Ethical Trading Initiative 

 

This registry is an important tool for journalists who are monitoring company statements under the Act. It is critical that these statements are accessible in one place so we can identify companies that aren't meeting the mark in eradicating slavery.

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.

The Registry is supported and guided by:
