Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy for UK


This document describes GAVS’s (referred to as “Company”) Policy for prohibiting Slavery and Human Trafficking.

Company has a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery and we are committed to act ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners. We expect them to adopt the same zero-tolerance approach to the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labor, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children. We expect our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

This document outlines the data privacy protection policy of the organization GAVS. It describes in detail how GAVS collects, processes, and discloses information, and what choices you have with respect to the information. While GAVS had always been diligent in protecting corporate and personal data, this policy is an amendment to the existing protection in light of the GDPR and DPDP compliance’s requirements. This policy is also amended to bring better readability and clarity, in order to prevent any ambiguity in terms of its content and/or intentions.


As per section 54 (1) the (UK) Modern Slavery Act 2015 all bodies corporate and partnerships who (irrespective of where they are incorporated) (a) carry on a business, or part of a business, in the UK supplying goods or services, and (b) have a consolidated global turnover of above £36 million (or Euro equivalent) per annum, are required to prepare and publish an annual “Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement”.

This statement sets out the measures taken by the company to ensure that slavery or human trafficking is not taking place in any of its Employees, Contractors, Partners, Clients and Suppliers or within itself during its financial year.

Modern slavery

“Modern slavery” refers to the offences of human trafficking, slavery, servitude, and forced or compulsory labor. This can then be considered under five headings:

  • The sexual exploitation of adults;
  • The trafficking of adults into conditions of labor exploitation;
  • The trafficking of adults into conditions of criminal exploitation;
  • The trafficking of minors into conditions of sexual, criminal or labor exploitation;
  • Other forms of exploitation.

“Human trafficking” is a global crime that trades in people and exploits them for profit.

“Human trafficking” is defined in the UN Trafficking in Persons Protocol, which supplements the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, as “the recruitment, transport, transfer, harboring or receipt of a person by such means as threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, abduction, fraud or deception for the purpose of exploitation”. Although human trafficking often involves an international cross-border element, it is also possible to be a victim of modern slavery within your own country. There are several broad categories of exploitation linked to human trafficking, including sexual exploitation, forced labor, domestic servitude, organ harvesting, child
related crimes, forced marriage and illegal adoption.


We want to help our Employees, Contractors, Partners, Clients and Suppliers to understand more about these issues and understand how to report any concerns they may have related to Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

We flag each update of this Statement and of the associated Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy to all the Employees and Contractors.


All Employees and Directors within the Company have a statutory obligation to report knowledge of Slavery or Human Trafficking. Any genuine information of Slavery or Human Trafficking is to be immediately reported to the Management, who will decide what further action, if any, as deemed necessary.

Employees and Contractors who raise concerns of Slavery or Human Trafficking in good faith may do so without fear of discrimination or reprisal.

These provisions do not replace any legal reporting or disclosure requirements. Where statutory reporting requirements and procedures exist, these must be fully complied with.

Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy also includes contact details for the following:

We are satisfied that we have in place systems to:

  • Monitor potential risk areas.
  • Identify and assess potential risk areas.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in company.
  • Protect whistle blowers.


The Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for ensuring this Policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.

The Global HR Head has primary day-to-day responsibility for implementing this Policy. Management at all levels is responsible for ensuring that those reporting to them are made aware of and has fully understood the Policy and, if necessary and appropriate, are given adequate and regular training on it.


The Global HR Head will monitor the effectiveness and review the implementation of this Policy, regularly considering its suitability, adequacy and effectiveness. Any improvement identified will be made and incorporated as soon as possible. Internal control systems and procedures will be subject to regular audits to provide assurance that they are effective in countering slavery and human trafficking.

All Employee and Contractors are responsible for the success of this Policy and should ensure they use it to disclose any suspected danger or wrongdoing.


Company may change this Policy from time to time, with a sole purpose to cope up with changing business nature. This can also be due to the changes in laws, regulations and industry standards which may make those changes necessary.
