Modern slavery transparency in supply chains

Consultation opened on 17 February 2021. Closing date 31 May 2021.


The department is seeking your views on measures to eradicate modern slavery from the supply chains of public and commercial sector organisations.


Consultation description

This consultation has been extended until 31 May 2021

Transparency in supply chains (TISC) involves relevant businesses publishing a modern slavery statement and setting out the steps they have taken to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of their business or supply chains.

The proposed changes will see a strengthening of the TISC arrangements for commercial businesses with a turnover of £36m or more and will give effect to UK-wide arrangements which the Home Office consulted on during summer 2019.

We are also consulting to seek views on proposals to extend TISC requirements to Northern Ireland’s public sector organisations with a budget of £36m or more for the first time.
