The Modern Slavery Act came into force in 2015 and since then we’ve seen a wealth of similar legislation appear across the globe. In addition, there are increasing reports of trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, and other human cruelties tied to supply chains from all industries.

There are a number of due diligence standards out there but launched this year is the new BS25700 – Organisational Response to Modern Slavery that has been developed to provide your organisations with guidance on how you can develop your own organisational requirements and work with your supply chain to embed effective due diligence

In this 1 hour webinar you will hear from speakers who helped write the new standard and gain an insight into what is contained within it. You’ll discover how the standard could provide your organisation with a roadmap to addressing what is an increasing risk in these volatile times.

By the end of this webinar you will:

  • Gain insight into the main elements of the BS25700.
  • Understand what activities are key in setting up an organisational response to modern slavery.
  • Develop an understanding of the benefits and drivers for establishing an effective organisational response.
