Modern Slavery Policy

The Interclass Group of Companies (“Interclass Plc, Interclass Surfacing Ltd, Interclass Construction Services”) is committed to driving out acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking with our organisation and supply chains. We will not deal with any company, organisation or person involved in slavery or human trafficking. This policy statement outlines how we protect against slavery in our supply chains in line with meeting the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

This policy statement has been developed to an appropriate level due to the nature and scope of The Interclass Group business operations. Our work within the UK construction industry and our utilisation of regional and national supply chains.

We have taken the following steps to endeavour that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any of our supply chains:

We have a robust supply chain approval process which incorporates measures to ensure slavery and human trafficking offences are not taking place;

• We actively communicate with all our supply chain on the requirements under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
• We require all our existing members of our supply chain to provide a declaration to abide by the Modern Day Slavery Statement and confirm compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. (Only supply chain members with a turnover of £36,000,000 or above).
• As part of our application questionnaire, to join our supply chain database, all new supply chain members will be required to confirm that they have a policy / statement that sets out the steps they have taken to ensure that slavery and trafficking is not taking place within their organisation or supply chain, as part of the selection process. This will be monitored internally and via Constructionline and CHAS accreditations.
• If an existing supply chain member has been convicted of any offence in relation to slavery or trafficking, then appropriate action will be taken and they will be removed from our supply chain.
• Training is provided to all employees who are involved in our supply chain procurement and management process within our organisation, in identifying issues related to slavery and trafficking.

This policy statement will be reviewed annually by the Directors who shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement to ensure that our organisation and supply chains are free of slavery and human trafficking.
