California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657)
Referred to as SB 657, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act adds to the existing federal Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000. Existing state law makes human trafficking a crime; it allows a victim of human trafficking to bring a civil action for actual damages, compensatory damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, any combination of those, or any other appropriate relief. Existing law generally regulates various business activities and practices, including those of retail sellers and manufacturers of products. Swanson Health Products is committed to compliance with the declaration requirements of SB 657, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, which requires retail sellers and manufacturers doing business in the state of California to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains for tangible goods offered for sale effective January 1, 2012. In addition, Swanson is committed to developing and upholding a policy regarding human rights issues and requiring the same commitment of its suppliers.
The points outlined below in bold highlight each of the five pillars of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, followed by an explanation of Swanson Health Products (SHP) status regarding each pillar.
