Modern Slavery Registry


Section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act requires commercial organisations that operate in the UK and have an annual turnover above £36m to produce a statement setting out the steps they are taking to address and prevent the risk of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains; it is also known as the Transparency in Supply Chains clause (TISC). A number of key stakeholders that were influential in securing the inclusion of the TISC clause also advocated for the Government to create a central registry that would host modern slavery statements. The Government has maintained its position that it will not establish a central registry, however, it does agree that it is a valuable resource. The Modern Slavery Registry provides this resource. The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre and its partners agree that a central registry should meet a core set of criteria and be: independent, accountable to the public interest, robust, credible, free, open, accessible and sustainable in the long term. A resource that meets these criteria will enable stakeholders to analyse whether statements are in compliance with the legislation and analyse the quality of reporting.
