Supply Chains Act
The State of California has enacted Senate Bill 657, known as the “California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010” (the “Act”). The Act requires that Metagenics disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chain for tangible goods offered for sale.
Metagenics fully supports the goals of the Act, and it is Metagenics’ policy to comply with the requirements of the Act.
Metagenics is in the process of requiring its active direct suppliers to certify that the materials they supply to Metagenics comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business and that their suppliers of the raw materials incorporated into the products supplied to Metagenics are also in compliance.
Metagenics does not currently conduct training, nor does it verify or audit supplier compliance with company standards or applicable laws regarding human trafficking and slavery; however, Metagenics is evaluating the possibility of doing so.
- Metagenics is in the process of developing supply-chains risk assessment, as well as accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery and trafficking.
