 Are you prepared for Australia’s Modern Slavery Act?

Is your company and your supply chain ready to address human rights issues including human trafficking, forced labour, bonded labour, forced labour, child labour, and orphanage trafficking?

The Modern Slavery Act is now law in Australia and entities with a turnover in excess of $100 million will need to report, with the first reporting period for most entities beginning on 1 July 2019. These reports will be made public on a Government run repository. Even if you are a smaller company those you supply to will be requiring reporting information from you.

Whether you already using Sedex, need a refresh or are considering using Sedex – this workshop will comprehensively address the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act and how Sedex provides the necessary social audit tools.

Who is the best fit to attend this workshop?

The person or team responsible for Modern Slavery Act reporting. This may include your C-Suite / Directors, In-House Legal Counsel, Compliance Manager/Officer, Ethical Sourcing Manager, Procurement Manager, Heads of Operational Risk, Auditor and/or Sustainability Manager. 

This workshop is the best opportunity for you to understand about all the requirements of The Australian Modern Slavery Act and SMETA audit and support the building of best practice systems in your business.

Using their combined first-hand experience and wisdom
