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 L3 Telemetry & RF Products to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chains. As part of its annual representation and certifications that it obtains from suppliers, L3 Telemetry & RF Products intends to obtain certifications from its 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 Division, L3 Telemetry & RF Products, does engage in verification of product supply chains, and conducts compliance audits and maintains internal accountability standards and training, it does 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 its direct suppliers utilize forced labor or child labor.
This effort will complement the efforts currently made in performance of the 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. L3 Telemetry & RF Products has 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 James Kloberdanz, Vice President of Operations.
