Disclosure – California’s Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (S.B. 657) went into effect in the State of California. This law was designed to increase the amount of information made available by manufacturers and retailers regarding their efforts to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking, and allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.
Aquatic takes great pride in ensuring our American-made bathware is manufactured in a lawful and ethical manner. We expect our suppliers to do the same. As a company philosophy, Aquatic strongly opposes any and all illegal and unethical treatment of people, including any acts of slavery or human trafficking.
Aquatic selects suppliers who support our values and expect them to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We do not currently verify our product supply chain or audit suppliers specifically to evaluate risks of human trafficking and slavery or require our direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into products comply with laws regarding slavery and human trafficking in the countries in which they are doing business. We also do not currently maintain internal standards for employees and contractors regarding slavery and human trafficking specifically or provide training to employees and management on these specific matters. Aquatic employees and management do receive regular training on our corporate values and are expected to respect the human rights and dignity of all people.
