MSC is committed to responsible corporate citizenship and to eliminating all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery from our supply chain. We expect all our suppliers to operate their businesses with the utmost integrity and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
MSC has put in place an ongoing program for our suppliers located in the Asia-Pacific region to help ensure that their business practices do not include or support human trafficking or modern slavery.
This program includes:
conducting formal audits, along with informal and/or unannounced visits to monitor and evaluate supplier compliance with our requirements; where any non-conformance is found, MSC requires the supplier to perform corrective actions, and if non-conformances persist, MSC may cease to do business with the supplier.
- a comprehensive process for vetting potential suppliers, including thorough on-site factory visits to observe and assess conditions;
- requiring suppliers that are selected to:
- sign and comply with our supplier agreements and Supplier Manual that require them to certify that the products they provide to MSC comply with laws prohibiting slavery and human trafficking and that convict labour, forced labour, and human trafficking are not employed in the manufacture of their products; and
- agree to provide reasonable access to their records, employees and premises, if required by MSC or any of our customers, in order to verify compliance with MSC's agreements, policies and applicable laws and regulations; and
