Original Thing and The Modern Slavery Act.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 was introduced with the purpose of targeting offences related to slavery and human trafficking. As such, provisions in the Act make transparency in the supply chain a requirement for any commercial organisation supplying goods or services in the UK.
Original Thing Ltd. fully supports the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Original Thing Ltd. Is a promotional merchandise business providing services to its customers via directly employed full and part-time staff and an EU-based contractor network.
Original Thing Ltd. supply chain includes the sourcing/supply/import/export of promotional merchandise/products used in promotional marketing and customisation.
Original Thing Ltd. carries out thorough due diligence on all major supply chain partners and will - for any new major contractor or supplier - take steps to ensure confirmation of their compliance with the Act.
MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING POLICY
Original Thing Ltd. 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.
Original Thing Ltd. acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services. These as well as the suppliers of services who make up the supply chain.
As part of the Original Thing Ltd. 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.
Company Directors and management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training, etc.) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within the organisation and within its supply chains.
A copy of this policy and a copy of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be accessible to all employees electronically and can be obtained upon request.
This policy statement will be reviewed annually and published.
The statement reviewed on June 18th, 2022.
