Code of Conduct
SUPPLY CHAIN ACT
SUPPLY CHAIN ACT
Swairah takes respect for human rights and compliance with laws very
seriously. We share our commitment to ethical practices and agree to operate
under our standards of business conduct, including our Factory Workplace Code of
Conduct. Each factory in Swairah Network must understand
and agree to operate its factory in compliance with our Code of Conduct.
|Engages in verification of product supply chains to evaluate and
address risks of Child Labor, human trafficking and slavery. The disclosure shall specify
if the verification was not conducted by a third party. (Certification)|
Under the Code of Conduct, Swairah suppliers certify that they will
conduct business in compliance with the law, including among other things,
without child labor, forced labor, harassment or discrimination.
|Conducts audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with
company standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains. The disclosure
shall specify if the verification was not an independent, unannounced audit.
Periodic unannounced audits are performed using our Quality Assurance and
Social Compliance staff to ensure compliance with the Code of Conduct.
Additionally, many of our customers will request a third party complete a
Social Compliance Audit to ensure compliance with their requirements. In both
cases these audits will examine in detail various aspects of working
conditions, safety conditions and maintained documentation to ensure
compliance with the letter and spirit of our Code of Conduct and our
customer's Social Compliance requirements.
|Requires direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into
the product comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of
the country or countries in which they are doing business. (Audits)|
Swairah requires that each factory certify that the Swairah Workplace
Code of Conduct standards are met and the factory is in compliance with all
applicable laws of the country of manufacture.
|Maintains internal accountability standards and procedures for
employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery
and trafficking. (Internal Accountability Standards)|
Any factory not in compliance with the Swairah Code of Conduct will be
notified of the elements of noncompliance, and may be afforded a limited
period of time in which to bring operations into compliance. Regarding our
Customer Social Compliance Audits, the corrective action planning process is
based on the individual customer requirements. Any factory not in compliance
after such period (if granted) will be removed from our Core Factory list
until compliance is completed.
|Provides company employees and management, who have direct
responsibility for supply chain management, training on human trafficking and
slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply
chains of products. (Training)|
Our factories certify that all employees have been informed about the
Workplace Code of Conduct standards through oral and written means. A copy of
the Code of Conduct, written in both the primary language of the factory and
English, is posted for employee review.
