Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking policy

This policy outlines the ICAEW’s position on modern slavery and human trafficking.


We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. This policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls which address the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking.

As part of our efforts to identify and mitigate the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking, we shall:

  • Look to build long term relationships with our suppliers  and clearly highlight to them our expectations of business behaviour;
  • Look to contract with a UK company or branch whenever possible and ensure that these entities have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and procedures in place;
  • Encourage the reporting of concerns and provide appropriate protection for whistle blowers.

We will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. Senior management will take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and will provide training and adequate communication throughout ICAEW to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within ICAEW or its supply chains.

This policy will be reviewed annually.
