1. Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking 

1.1. Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.

2.2. Exonar has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in its organisation and supply chains

2.3. The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of the organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for, or on, behalf Exonar.  Employees must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy

2.4. Exonar is committed to engaging with stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in its operations and supply chain

2.5. The Company takes a risk-based approach to its contracting processes and keeps them under review. Exonar assesses whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in its contracts with third parties. Using a risked based approach, Exonar will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with its Supplier Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking

2.6.1. Employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying employees to its organisation to confirm their compliance with the Exonar Supplier Code of Conduct 

2.6.2. Suppliers engaging employees through a third party to obtain that third party’s agreement to adhere to the Code 

2.7. As part of Exonar's ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes it will consider whether circumstances warrant audits being carried out of suppliers for their compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct

2.8. If Exonar finds that other individuals or organisations working on the Company's behalf have breached this policy, it will ensure that appropriate action is taken. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationship
