Modern Slavery Act 2015
Statement on Compliance with Modern Slavery Act 2015
Perth College UHI, in recognition of its responsibilities under the Modern Slavery Act 2015, adopts a robust approach to eliminating slavery and human trafficking across all of its activities.
Perth College UHI is committed to carrying out procurement of goods and services in an environmentally, social, ethically and economically responsible manner and entering into agreements and contracts with suppliers that share and adhere to this commitment.
Supply Chain Code of Conduct
Much of the college’s procurement of goods and services is carried out through APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) Ltd of which it is a member. APUC requires all suppliers to sign a supply chain code of conduct which confirms that the supplier does not use forced, involuntary or underage labour, provides suitable working conditions and terms and treats employees fairly.
The college uses the same supply chain code of conduct for suppliers who are sourced directly and asks all suppliers to respond to the pass/fail question above.
The college is a leading partner in the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), providing tertiary education encompassing further and higher education.
For details of the full statement which sets out the college’s actions as part of the UHI and its commitment to understanding potential modern slavery risks related to its activities, please visit the UHI website.
