CA Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657), effective January 1, 2012, requires manufacturers and retailers above a certain size doing business in California to disclose their efforts (if any) to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from their direct supply chains. In support of this law, the company has provided the following disclosures:
To the best of its ability Turner’s Outdoorsman works with its vendors and suppliers to evaluate and address the risks of human trafficking and slavery. Currently the company does not utilize a 3rd party for verification but may utilize vendors and suppliers who do use 3rd party verification.
The company does not currently audit suppliers for compliance with respect to the company’s standards with regards to trafficking and slavery in the supply chain. The company may utilize vendors who either self-audit or utilize 3rd party auditing methods.
Currently the company does not require vendors and suppliers to certify that materials incorporated in their products meet compliance standards, but the company does utilize suppliers who may do so internally and independently of the company. It is the company’s understanding that all of the company’s vendors and suppliers follow legal practices with regards to the goods they produce.
The company will not engage in business with vendors and suppliers who are known to the company to violate laws regarding human trafficking and slavery. If it becomes known to the company that suppliers or vendors are not compliant with the laws with respect to human trafficking and slavery, the company will not utilize them as a vendor or supplier.
The company does not utilize training at this time in order to evaluate vendor and supplier compliance with laws relative to human trafficking and slavery.
