The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act requires companies to disclose the extent, if any, to which companies have taken specific actions to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains.
The Corona Code of Ethics, signed acknowledgment of which is required from all Mansfield Plumbing Products LLC (“the Company”) supply chain managers, requires the Company to reject doing business with suppliers that do not provide fair treatment to their employees or are found to employ forms of hard labor and, specifically, child labor.
Since 2007 the Company has been certified under the US Customs and Border Protection Agency’s Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program, a voluntary U.S. program intended to improve supply chain security. Colceramica, S.A., the Company’s sister company and largest off shore vendor is similarly certified under the international Business Anti-Smuggling Coalition (BASC).
The Company has not taken specific actions with respect to (i) verification of product supply chains to evaluate risks of human trafficking and slavery; (ii) conducting audits of suppliers to evaluate compliance with company standards on human trafficking and slavery; (iii) requiring direct suppliers to certify that their products comply with applicable laws against human trafficking and slavery; (iv) maintaining internal procedures for employees and contractors who fail to meet company standards; and (v) providing training on mitigating the risks of human trafficking within the supply chain.
This disclosure is required by the State of California pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1714.43.
