Modern Slavery Policy
The Company’s understanding of slavery and human trafficking is based on the definitions set out in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is guided by the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the conventions of the International Labour Organisation particularly relating to forced or compulsory labour. As part of the pharmaceutical industry, Manx Healthcare Ltd. recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking and is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its business activities and ensuring to the best of its ability that its supply chain is free from such activities.
Manx Healthcare Ltd. is a commercial organisation, in the business of the development, manufacture and sale of pharmaceutical and healthcare products to hospitals, community pharmacies, clinical groups, dispensing doctors and wholesalers in the UK and worldwide. As part of our commitment to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both our business and our supply chain and conducting our business with honesty and integrity, we expect the same high ethical standards from our suppliers. Our responsibility in this area includes creating awareness and understanding of human rights and employment practices.
