Our Modern Slavery Policy

PCMS expects its employees, contractors and suppliers to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Modern Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all business relationships. As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, PCMS requests that all suppliers provide written confirmation that they are not involved in slavery or human trafficking.
Supplier Adherence to our Policy
PCMS seeks to obtain a statement from all suppliers which confirms such suppliers do not participate in slavery and human trafficking. Additionally, PCMS includes a compliance clause with the Modern Slavery Act in all our agreements. PCMS reserves the right to audit all suppliers to ensure suppliers align their guidelines, policies and practices with PCMS’ approach to Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking. A breach of such requirements may lead to a review or termination of PCMS’ relationship with a supplier.
PCMS’ Legal, Supplier Management and HR teams are involved in ensuring compliance both internally at PCMS and externally with suppliers and other relevant third parties.
Continuing Effort and Commitment
PCMS will continue to assess our policies and engage with our employees, contractors and suppliers to raise awareness and manage risk of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking occurring in our organisation and in our supply chain.
