Notice of Disclosure Requirements to California Civil Code Section 1714.43, California Transparency in the Supply Chains Act of 2010
The subject law, effective January 1, 2012, requires businesses headquartered in California to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains. As part of their annual representation and certifications that they obtain from suppliers, L-3 businesses headquartered in California intend to obtain certifications from their direct suppliers that materials incorporated into their products, comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. While the L-3 divisions headquartered in California do engage in verification of product supply chains, and conduct compliance audits and maintain internal accountability standards and training, L-3 businesses headquartered in California do not currently do this specifically for human trafficking and slavery. However, the Division's Contract personnel, Purchasing personnel and Management personnel are sensitive to the subject of ensuring that none of it's direct suppliers utilize forced labor or child labor.
This effort will complement the efforts currently made in performance of the L-3 Division's United States Government Contracts which include the requirements found in FAR Subpart 22-15, Prohibition of Acquisition of Products Produced by Forced or Indentured Child Labor and FAR Subpart 22-17, Combating Trafficking in Persons. L-3 businesses headquartered in California have an established supply chain which complies with the FAR regulations through its terms and conditions, periodic direct supplier audits, and representations and certifications. Actual identification or suspicion of any supplier violations will result in further investigation, and if justified, termination of the supplier and appropriate reports to Government officials.
Any questions regarding this Notice should be brought to the attention of Alexis Byrd.
