Modern Slavery Policy Statement

Modern Slavery is a heinous crime and CCL Computers Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking. It is committed to preventing modern slavery from occurring, including forced or compulsory labour or servitude, at any point within both its business and supply chain.

Company structure and supply chain

CCL Computers Limited is a computer hardware reseller. It sells primarily to the UK, with some sales worldwide. It sells to resellers, individual retail consumers, businesses, and public bodies. 

CCL has approximately 65 employees, all of which are employed at its warehouse and offices in Bradford England. It has no subsidiary companies.

CCL Computers Limited sources hardware and peripherals worldwide from global manufacturers. It buys through distributors who are mostly based in the UK and EU and sometimes direct from manufacturers worldwide. 

Due diligence

CCL is aware that appropriate due diligence processes will improve the risk identification of possible modern slavery.

We have:

  • Made our staff aware of the Modern Slavery Act, including its definitions of slavery and human trafficking;
  • Told staff what to do if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking;
  • Put in place a review of our Supplier Application process to include modern slavery provisions
  • Conducted an ongoing review of the existing supply chain by the purchasing manager and directors.
  • Vet suppliers as far as is practicable of their own compliance of the provisions of the legislation

The above procedures are designed to Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.

Employees

We employ robust recruitment procedures within the company including “right to work” document check, contracts of employment, and ensuring everyone employed is 16 years or over. We have specific provisions for under 18 year olds.

Steps to be taken

For our business year 2020/2021 we aim to develop anti slavery and trafficking training for appropriate employees, for instance those involved with the recruitment process and those involved with the supply chain.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes CCL's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 August 2020
