This statement, made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, sets out the approach taken by Firetrace International LLC to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and the actions undertaken to mitigate any such risks during the financial year.

Modern slavery is a heinous crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person’s liberty and dignity for another person’s gain.  It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery.  Every company is at risk of being involved in this crime through its own operations and supply chain. 

Firetrace International LLC carriers out periodic supplier audits, where issues are identified and coordinates with the affected supplier to ensure improvements are made.  These audits include interviews with all level of employees and management of the vendor. 

We establish a relationship of trust and integrity with all our suppliers, which is built upon mutually beneficial factors.  Our supplier selection and on-boarding procedure includes due diligence of the supplier’s reputation, respect for the law, compliance with health, safety and environmental standard and references. 

 The following actions have been taken as due diligence of compliance:

 Risk profiles established for all vendors based a variety of factors such as country, certification and financial health

  • Letter of awareness and consent sent to all suppliers
  • Modern Slavery Act 2015 statement added to the Terms and Conditions and posted on the Firetrace website
  • Modified new vendor supplier assessment form to include section of Modern Slavery Act 2015 compliance
  • Company-wide training on the Modern Slavery Act 2015
  • Modern Slavery Act 2015 posted in conspicuous locations throughout the building

 We take all allegations seriously of human trafficking/ slavery activities reported or observed against any of our suppliers and take immediate appropriate actions.
