Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking
Supply Chain Compliance
Ensuring supply chains are free of slavery and human trafficking is an important yet challenging task for modern companies.
Customers expect companies of all sizes to provide supply chain transparency and ensure they do not contribute to human rights violations.
GreenSoft Technology provides Statement of Compliance collection services for companies that need to show supply chain due-diligence in this regard.
Our solution complies with the UK Modern Slavery Act (MSA), the anti-slavery and human trafficking provisions of the US Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act.
Compliance document collection
GreenSoft's Data Services team will contact your suppliers to collect anti-slavery and human trafficking documentation on your behalf.
We'll request that your suppliers provide Statements of Compliance asserting that no enslaved or trafficked labor has been used by their company.
We will also help your suppliers generate such statements if they have not yet created them.
Supply chain due-diligence
In our experience, it takes an average of 4 emails or phone calls per supplier to obtain valid data and documentation.
This documentation needs to be obtained from suppliers all the way down the supply chain, making the task of collection even more time and resource-consuming.
GreenSoft Technology will take care of this collection for you. Our team will contact your suppliers as many times as it takes to obtain the necessary documentation on your behalf.

UK Modern Slavery Act (MSA)
Enacted in March 2015, the UK Modern Slavery Act is designed to prevent slavery, servitude, forced labor, and human trafficking.
The UK MSA aims to prevent such human rights violations not just from a company's base operations, but all the way through the supply chain.
Any commercial organization with a turnover of £36 million or more that sells goods or services and carries on a business or part of a business in any part of the United Kingdom is required to comply.
Affected companies must prepare a Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement every financial year and publish this statement to the company website. In order to generate this statement, companies must collect similar statements from their suppliers all the way down their supply chain, as well as conduct risk analyses and audits on high-risk suppliers.
GreenSoft will collect these statements from your suppliers for you, and conduct a risk analysis to determine which suppliers are high or low risk.
If your company or any of your suppliers need guidance on generating such a statement, we can help with that too.
US Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
In March 2015, "Ending Trafficking in Persons" provisions were added to the US Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
These provisions apply to any companies with US government contracts or sub-contracts that are for services performed outside the United States and with an estimated value exceeding $500,000.
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act was enacted in October 2010 and went into effect in January 2012.
This Act applies to any retail seller or manufacturer doing business in California that has annual worldwide gross receipts of more than $100 million.
Similar to the UK MSA, both of these regulations require certification statements from affected companies, and a risk analysis and the collection of similar statements from their suppliers.
