Modern Slavery Policy
Appendix 7: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy
VMS makes this policy pursuant to the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018, section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act 2010. It sets out the steps we have taken to combat modern slavery in both our own organisation and our supply chains.
VMS respect for human rights is an integral part of our core values and business principles, as outlined in our Code of Conduct. We foster a culture that respects dignity and human rights and we believe that conducting business with high ethical trading standards is fundamental to this culture.
Modern Slavery Definition
In this policy, the term “modern slavery” is inclusive of all forms of modern slavery, including human trafficking, forced labour, and child labour.
Scope & responsibilities
Our business and supply chains are involved with the manufacturing and distribution of systems and services. We purchase materials and services both locally and internationally. Supply chains are critical to our business and are carefully managed. The majority of our inputs are sourced within China, the European Union and the United States. Most of our supply chains are, by design, relatively short and stable. Our strategy is where possible to conduct business directly with suppliers and manufacturers. Doing business directly with suppliers helps us to ensure that the materials and services we source are ethical from origin.
