Corporate Overview

CA SB 657 Disclosures

Corporate Disclosure in Compliance with SB657 California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

 
At Cambridge Isotope Laboratories, Inc. (“CIL”), we are firmly committed to human rights and ethical standards of conduct in our business practices, and we seek strong partnerships with suppliers who share these same values. It is with these principles in mind that we have established our Supplier Code of Conduct which sets forth specific guidelines regarding labor, human rights (including a prohibition on slavery and human trafficking), health and safety and the environment.
 
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect, requiring retailers and manufacturers above a certain size doing business in California to disclose what efforts, if any, they have taken to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains for goods offered for sale. The disclosure is aimed at providing information to consumers, allowing them to make better, more informed choices about the products they buy and the companies they support.
 
Verification: CIL maintains a Code for suppliers, which stipulates that all third parties with whom CIL does business are expected to provide a workplace free of human rights abuses, provide wages and benefits that comply with national laws and industry standards, and comply with all applicable labor and employment laws— including those that prohibit human trafficking and the employment of forced, bonded, enslaved, indentured, or involuntary prison labor. In compliance with US federal and state laws, CIL itself uses only voluntary labor and does not engage in forced or involuntary labor of any kind or in human trafficking. 
 
Auditing: As part of CIL’s review of its product supply chain, certain suppliers may be subject to periodic audits, either unannounced or pre-arranged. While slavery and human trafficking are not specific targets of these audits, CIL personnel will include a review of the Supplier Code of Conduct guidelines. Any identified issues or violations to the CIL Supplier Code of Conduct will be discussed with the audited facility management whom would be expected to address all identified issues as noted. 
 
Certification: CIL does not formerly require all suppliers to certify their compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct.  
 
Accountability: CIL maintains internal accountability standards for its own compliance with US federal and state laws including those relating to lawful labor practices. If CIL discovers a violation of our Supplier Code of Conduct by a supplier, CIL’s will request that the supplier remedy the violation, upholding workers’ rights and improving the overall workplace environment. If a supplier does not correct the violation, CIL is prepared to end the relationship with that supplier.
 
Training: CIL employees, who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, are being provided with the Supplier Code of Conduct which sets forth guidelines on human trafficking and slavery, particularly with respect to identifying and mitigating risks within the supply chain of products.
