Environmental and Human Rights concerns are a global priority. Many countries now require manufacturers, sellers and/or distributors of industrial and residential products to track all the materials such as Hazardous Substances and Conflict Minerals in their products not only just for reduced waste and recycling purposes but also to address issues related with Sustainability, Anti-Bribary / Anti-Corruption, Human Rights violation, Fair Labour Practices, Protection against Child Labor, and UK Modern Anti-Slavery Legislation. Information on materials in the supply chain must comply with legal requirements and enable companies successfully manage corporate responsibility programs.
U.K. Modern Anti-Slavery Legislation was enacted by the U.K. Parliament in 2015, this legislations provides for the seizure of assets of any entity engaged or employing within their supply chain (even at several steps removed) those engaged in slavery or human trafficking and conducting commerce within the U.K. The regulations in place require companies that use tin, tungsten, tantalum, or gold (3TG) in their products, or in the production of their products, to file an annual disclosure report on their supply chain due diligence. The origins of these minerals must be reported when they are from conflict-affected or high-risk areas (e.g., from the Democratic Republic of Congo or its adjoining countries). Even if your company itself is not subject to the legislation, if your clients or their clients are subject to it, you are likely to be required to provide a Conflict Minerals Declaration (CMD).
