Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (the “Act”). It sets out the steps Master Henry Ltd has taken to prevent acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring in its business and supply chain up to and during the Company’s financial year ended March 31, 2022.

Founded in 2014 Master Henry Limited trading as StandardsUK is a SME consultancy practice that focuses on the design, development and implementation of compliance solutions for its clients. Our main focus are the frameworks mandated by ISO standards and assisting clients achieve and maintain their ongoing certifications and compliance requirements.

Our Supply Chain

We engage with multiple supply chain entities and 3rd party service providers including the following:

  • Software as a Solution (SaaS) providers and data infrastructure providers

  • Specialist contracted resource for the provision of technical services and support

  • Legal and accountancy service providers

  • Hardware and equipment providers

Our Approach

We are committed to operating in a fair, responsible and ethical manner with respect to fundamental human rights. While the countries, regions and industry sectors which we operate within do not present any particular risk associated with modern slavery, we recognise that slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor, and human trafficking (referred to as “Modern Slavery”) are serious crimes and global human rights issues, and we take seriously our responsibility to comply with the Act and to assist in preventing and combating Modern Slavery.

This statement includes a description of our efforts over the past financial year to identify and mitigate the risk of Modern Slavery in our business and supply chain, and the policies and processes we have in place to report non-compliance.

As a compliance focused practice it is paramount that we comply with applicable legal requirements and act with the utmost integrity, honesty, and transparency. We are committed to acting responsibly in all of our business dealings to ensure that we comply with applicable national and international legislation and industry standards, including laws and standards against Modern Slavery. Preserving an ethical workplace and supply chain that respects human rights is critical to our long-term success as a specialist services provider.

 

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to:

  • identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains;

  • mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains;

  • monitor potential risks in our supply chains; and

  • protect whistleblowers.

These policies and processes include and overall Code of Conduct requires our directors, officers and employees of the Company to uphold high ethical and professional standards of conduct. The Code requires such persons to report any violations confidentially, as applicable to our Directors.
 

Through both the Code and our Whistleblower Policy, we prohibit any retaliation against those who make good-faith reports of concerns about the lawfulness of any of our business practices, or breaches of the Code.

We mandate that our employees are not subject to undue influence and are treated fairly and with respect and support these

expectations with appropriate policies and operational protocols.

 

Looking Ahead

In the 2022 financial year, we will maintain our practices and processes to help combat Modern Slavery.
