The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
Built Brands Disclosure under the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires retail sellers and manufacturers doing business in California to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its supply chains. Built Brands is committed to the elimination of all forms of human trafficking and slavery, and we expect our suppliers to comply with all legal requirements when working on our behalf. The Act requires a disclosure of what actions the company is taking, if any, in five specific areas.
Verification: Built Brands engages in verification of product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery.
Audits: Audit activities are conducted via an official supplier questionnaire or in person when warranted and necessary.
Certificates: Built Brands does not require direct suppliers to provide documentation that certify materials incorporated into our products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking. However, we do question our suppliers to ensure that the products and ingredients purchased are done so in a manner that complies with the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010.
Internal Accountability: Built Brands adheres to strict internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors regarding slavery and trafficking.
