Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

DM & C Ash Limited (trading as "Ash Drywall") is committed to driving out acts of modern slavery and human trafficking both: (a) within its business; and (b) from within its supply chains, including amongst sub-contractors and partners.

Ash Drywall acknowledges its responsibilities under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will seek to ensure transparency on related issues both internally and amongst suppliers of goods and services (the “supply-chain”).

As part of Ash Drywall’s due diligence processes, the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier in respect of modern slavery and human trafficking. Ash Drywall considers that imported goods from territories outside the UK and EU are potentially higher risk (in terms of slavery/human trafficking issues) and undertakes to implement appropriate management systems for scrutinising relevant parts of its supply-chain. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored.

Ash Drywall will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.

Ash Drywall’s Directors shall take responsibility for implementing this policy, and its objectives, and shall provide adequate resources (including, where necessary, training and internal communications) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within Ash Drywall and its supply chains.

Electronic copies of this policy and the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be made accessible to all employees. This policy will be reviewed annually and published internally.

This policy takes account of and supports all other current Ash Drywall policies and procedures.

The implementation and operation of our management system underlines our commitment to this policy.

Formal procedures concerning slavery and human trafficking have been established, including disciplinary procedures where they are breached. Additional procedures ensure this policy is: (a) understood and communicated to all levels of Ash Drywall; and (b) regularly reviewed by Ash Drywall’s Directors to ensure its continuing suitability and relevance to Ash Drywall's activities.
