Anti-slavery and human trafficking clauses (pro-customer)

A set of standard clauses for inclusion in supply contracts or contracts that anticipate a connection with a supply chain relationship. They are most suitable for use where the other party is part of a sector, or is based in a location where slavery and human trafficking are known to be prevalent. The clauses are by their nature pro-customer, in that they seek to eliminate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in the customer's supply chain. However, the clauses also try to strike a balance between the challenges faced by suppliers and customers in eliminating this risk.

The standard clauses seek to ensure that entities in an organisation's supply chain agree to its anti-slavery and human trafficking policy. They also include optional warranty and indemnity provisions, country specific clauses, reporting obligations, audit obligations and restrictions on sub-contracting. These can be included where appropriate following an assessment of the risk of slavery and human trafficking in the supply chain connected with a particular transaction.
