Modern Slavery Policy

  1. Introduction

    3D Printer Gear is committed to driving out acts of modern slavery and human trafficking within its business and from its supply chains. We acknowledge our responsibility to prevent modern slavery and we are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent modern slavery in our corporate activities and supply chains.

  2. Scope of Policy

    This policy applies to all individuals working at all levels and grades, including senior managers, officers, directors, employees (whether permanent, fixed-term, or temporary), consultants, contractors, trainees, homeworkers, casual workers, agency staff, volunteers, interns, agents, sponsors, or any other person associated with us, wherever in the world they operate.

  3. Policy Statement

    3D Printer Gear has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in all its forms and we are committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings. We are committed to creating effective systems and controls to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

  4. Supply Chains

    We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. We expect all our suppliers and contractors to share the same values. We assess our suppliers for risks related to modern slavery and require them to provide their own policies against modern slavery. If a supplier is found to be in breach of our policy, we will take immediate action which may include termination of our relationship.

  5. Due Diligence

    3D Printer Gear undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly reviews its existing suppliers. Our due diligence process includes building long-standing relationships with suppliers and making clear our expectations of business behavior.

  6. Training and Awareness

    3D Printer Gear will provide training on this policy as part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us and regularly review its effectiveness. Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery will be communicated to all suppliers, contractors, and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter.

  7. Reporting

    We encourage anyone (including employees, subcontractors, suppliers, and clients) to report any suspicion of slavery or human trafficking without fear of retaliation. We will thoroughly investigate any such reports and take appropriate action.

  8. Responsibility for Policy Implementation

    The board of directors has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all persons working with us or on our behalf in any capacity comply with it.

    This policy will be reviewed regularly and updated as necessary. The board of directors endorses this policy statement and is fully committed to its implementation.
