CA Supply Chain Transparency
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 567)
BUYSEASONS requires all of its vendors/suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the United States and those of the respective country of manufacture or exportation. The California Transparency Supply Chain Act (SB 657) requires retailers to disclose the efforts they take to ensure that human trafficking and slavery do not occur in the retailers direct supply chain.
Vendor Code of Conduct (the “Code”)
BUYSEASONS requires all of its vendors/suppliers to comply with its Vendor Code of Conduct (the “Code”), which includes language strictly prohibiting human trafficking and slavery.
We review our supplier base and assess all potential suppliers to determine the level of risk associated with each supplier with respect to compliance with the Code.
Compliance and Auditing
BUYSEASONS reserves the right to audit any vendor at any time, either through a third-party or on its own, with or without notice. BUYSEASONS will not tolerate and will quickly investigate any reports alleging human trafficking and slavery in the supply chain. If we believe that a supplier is not in compliance with our standards with respect to our Ethical Sourcing Code of Conduct, which includes the elimination of slavery and human trafficking, we will provide such supplier with the opportunity to remedy any potential non-compliance through the implementation of a corrective action plan and we will conduct a subsequent audit. Should the supplier continue to fail to meet our standards, we will seek to eliminate such supplier from our supply chain.
BUYSEASONS Associates (Employees)
In 2012, BUYSEASONS employees responsible for supply chain-related decisions will be required to complete training to educate them on identifying and addressing human trafficking and slavery in BUYSEASONS’ supply chain.
