California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure Statement
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”) became effective January 1, 2012 in the State of California. The Act requires that certain companies doing business in California disclose their efforts to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains. Dansk fully supports California’s efforts to protect human rights and enforce ethical labor practices.
Dansk has programs to manage the risks of slavery and trafficking in our supply chain.
Our Sourcing Code of Conduct (the “Supplier Code”) addresses business practices of our third-party suppliers. The Supplier Code, which must be agreed to and signed by each supplier before any Dansk purchase order can be processed, contains specific provisions prohibiting the use of child labor and forced or involuntary labor.
In addition to self-certification of compliance by each supplier, Dansk sourcing personnel are required to monitor supplier compliance.
Our purchase order agreements also contain representations that our suppliers are in compliance with all applicable federal, state and/or provincial, regional, municipal, and local laws, codes, regulations, rules, ordinances, decrees, permits, registrations and orders.
Moreover, Dansk may conduct, either on its own or through independent third-parties, unannounced visits and/or audits to ensure compliance with the Supplier Code.
The Dansk Compliance Hotline, available to all employees, directors and contractors, enables the reporting of any noncompliance by Dansk suppliers, their employees or subcontractors. Dansk employees who do not act promptly to report noncompliance matters may be subject to disciplinary action.
