Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (which extends to Northern Ireland) requires certain organisations to develop a slavery and human trafficking statement each year. The slavery and human trafficking statement should set out what steps organisations have taken to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in their business or supply chains.
 

The attached guidance for businesses provides information on:

  • who is required to provide a statement
  • how to write a slavery and human trafficking statement
  • how to approve and publish a statement
  • how to respond to an incidence of modern slavery
