California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657)
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 became effective January 1, 2012. This law required companies disclose their efforts to address risks of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain for tangible goods offered to sale.
Ventura Coastal has adopted a Supplier Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that reflects our values and expectations of all our Supplier partners. Included in the Code is our expectations that our suppliers do not use any human trafficking or slavery. We expect all Ventura suppliers in its direct supply chain for tangible goods offered to sale to comply with the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and to certify their compliance. We reserve the right to conduct audits of relevant documentation and applicable facilities to monitor compliance with the Code. Upon reasonable notice of non-compliance, we reserve the right to discontinue business with any Supplier failing to comply or return to compliance with the Code. Additionally, Ventura Coastal employees will be provided training on human trafficking and slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply chain in the near future.
Currently, Ventura Coastal does not use a third party audit company to verify our product supply chains in regards to human rights. We do, however, verify our Quality systems through a third party audit system. We reserve the right to audit any supplier in regards to human rights in the future.
