Anti-slavery and human trafficking statement

Opening statement from senior management

We are committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within our business and supply chain and impose the same high standards on our suppliers.

Structure of the organisation

Motorscreen’s annual turnover is under £36 million and although we are not legally obliged to report on slavery and human trafficking, this statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2025.

Policies

As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we continue to implement the following policies:

Anti-Slavery Policy

Whistle Blowing Policy

We also make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same high standards.

These policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within our supply chains.

Due diligence

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted the following due diligence procedures

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains
  • Protect whistle blowers

Our procedures are designed to:

  • establish and assess areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains,
  • monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains,
  • reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains, and
  • provide adequate protection for whistle-blowers.

Risk and compliance

We regularly evaluate the nature and extent of our exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in our supply chain.

If we do identify a potential risk, Motorscreen will investigate, remediate and mitigate through activities such as our continued due diligence, improved procurement practices or industry collaboration.

We ensure all our suppliers adhere to our anti-slavery policy. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. For example, if we find evidence of a failure to comply with our policies, we will investigate and immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier.

Effectiveness and KPIs

We utilise the metrics from our due diligence activities to develop our strategies for carrying out audits and verifying the compatibility of suppliers.

Training

We invest in educating our staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our online training programmes, employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy. Employees are taught the benefits of stringent measures to tackle slavery and human trafficking, as well as the consequences of failing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our business and supply chains.

Further actions and sign-off

Following our review of our actions this financial year to prevent slavery or human trafficking from occurring in our business or supply chains, we intend to continue to review annually both our supply chains and external/internal operations to maintain compliance with our policy and implementation.

This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Motorscreen’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing 31 March 2024 and ending 31 March 2025.
