Disclosure Pursuant to California SB 657: California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (the “Act”)
Effective January 1, 2012, the Act requires certain manufacturers doing business in California, like Evenflo, to provide public disclosures about the oversight of their supply chains, in efforts to prevent human trafficking and slavery.
Our suppliers must understand that Evenflo does not permit the use of unpaid labor or condone the practice of human trafficking. To that end, we have requested that our suppliers perform periodic self-audits to ensure compliance with Evenflo’s standards in this regard, and are requiring each of our suppliers to certify annually in writing that the goods they provide to Evenflo comply with their country’s local laws concerning these issues, if any. Finally, Evenflo is requiring that each supplier verify annually that it does not engage in these unlawful practices and understands that Evenflo may audit its facility at any time upon reasonable notice to confirm compliance with the Act.
Additionally, each corporate employee has been made aware of the Act and the obligations it imposes on Evenflo. Each such employee is also required to confirm on an annual basis his or her awareness of the laws regarding human trafficking and slavery as they relate to Evenflo’s supply chain and his or her ongoing obligation to monitor our supply chain activities and report any potential violations of the law or Evenflo’s standards.
If this grave condition was found in our supply chain, the supplier would be subjected to remediation requirements in order to continue doing business with Evenflo.
