CA Supply Chain Act - old
CA Supply Chain Act
At FRAME, we are committed to the highest ethical standards and legal compliance in all aspects of our business and product supply chain. We choose suppliers who we believe share that commitment.
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect in the State of California. Under the law, large manufacturers and retailers are required to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking within their supply chains. The law’s underlying purpose is to educate consumers, so they can make informed decisions and purchase goods from companies that responsibly manage their supply chains.
We take the risks of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain very seriously. Like many companies manufacturing or selling products in California, we are required to comply with the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act. FRAME has a zero-tolerance policy for slavery and human trafficking and we are committed to ensuring that our supply chain reflects our respect for human rights.
Our relationships with vendors are based on lawful, efficient and fair practices. We expect our vendors to obey the laws that require them to treat workers fairly, and provide a safe and healthy work environment. We require our vendors to confirm in writing via our Supplier Agreement that they conform to these standards, and we maintain a file of these agreements.
We also reserve the right to require third-party audits of our suppliers to verify each supplier’s compliance with local laws. We reserve the right to terminate the relationship with any vendor who fails to comply with our requirements.
