MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
Micheldever Tyre Services Limited is committed to driving out acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking within its business and from within its supply chains, including sub-contractors, and partners.
The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation. These as well as the suppliers of service make up the supply chain within Micheldever Tyre Services Limited.
As part of the companies’ due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking, the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier. Imported goods from sources from outside the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery/ human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored.
The Company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
The Company Directors and Senior Management shall take responsibility for implementing this statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training, etc.) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking pace within the organisation and within its supply chains.
A full copy of the company’s Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking policy and a copy of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be accessible to all employees electronically and can be obtained from the HR department upon request.
This statement has been agreed to by the Board of Directors at a meeting on the 20th January 2020. The board agreed at this meeting that the statement will be reviewed annually and published.
This statement and the related policy considers, and supports, the policies, procedures and requirements documented in our Integrated Management System. The implementation and operation of this management system underlines our commitment to this policy. Formal procedures concerning slavery and human trafficking have been established, including disciplinary procedures where they are breached. Additional procedures ensure that this policy is understood and communicated to all levels of the Company, and that it is regularly reviewed by the Directors to ensure its continuing suitability and relevance to the company activities.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st December 2019.
