Modern Slavery Act

Modern Slavery Act

(NSW 2018 Act and Commonwealth 2018 Bill) Labour Rights and anti-Corruption

Inventis Limited has taken a Leadership position in managing its Modern Slavery, Labour Rights and anti-Corruption compliance.

As an SME we understand that our larger customers are going to have to report on their compliance, and as an SME we ask that our customers understand that we cannot possibly find the resources to fill out 100’s of different company’s different report formats, so we have provided this statement of both our position and compliance check methodologies.

Inventis started this process in 2018 with as part of an ongoing process that we will continue to fine tune.

As an SME we developed systems to manage our supply chain in in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Inventis is a member of SEDEX which we use to information in assess in supply chain partners with overseas factories in higher risk labour environments.

Statement of policy Inventis models its human rights policy around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and has examined and will continue to examine its supply chains. These acts are in place to assure Inventis’s best endeavour to establish and ensure that Modern Slavery does not exist in our supply chain.

Process Inventis clarifies its supply chain compliance down to two tiers using a combination of supplier questionnaires and manufacturing site visits.

Bribery and Corruption Inventis seeks a statement of compliance from its suppliers, down two tiers in relation to eliminating bribery and corruption from our supply chain as well as utilizing a program of staff policy and training to ensure absolute integrity.

Human and Labour Rights Inventis seeks to verify that all employees within it supply chain to 2 tiers have the ability to:

  • Choose who they work for
  • Work in safe conditions
  • Are paid properly for their work and including additional pay for additional work
  • Have no restrictions on their movement (passports and identity documents are not held by others)
  • Child labour is not engaged

Supply Chain Compliance check checked to two levels Inventis surveys both its local and International major suppliers for compliance and then asks these suppliers to do the same with their top 10 suppliers. We have gone to the efforts of having our Compliance survey documents supplied in Mandarin in order to ensure that these are answered without confusion caused by language issues. An excerpt from one of our international surveys is shown below.
