California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010

Beginning in 2012, many companies manufacturing or selling products in the state of California were required to disclose their efforts to address the issue of forced labor and human trafficking, regarding the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657). This law was designed to increase the amount of information made available by companies with regard to efforts to eradicate forced labor and human trafficking, thereby allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.

Forced labor and human trafficking can take many forms, including child labor. EliteLux Technologies, Inc. has a zero-tolerance policy for both forced labor and child labor.  EliteLux is committed to ensuring that our supply chain reflects EliteLux’s values and respect for human rights and the environment.

  • EliteLux’s relationships with suppliers are based on lawful, efficient and fair practices. We expect our suppliers to obey the laws that require them to treat workers fairly, and provide a safe and healthy work environment.  EliteLux requires that our manufacturing facilities confirm in writing that they conform to these standards, and maintains a file of these certifications at our US corporate office.

  • EliteLux’s policy guidelines forbid the use of forced labor, child labor and physically abusive disciplinary practices.

  • In furtherance of this policy, EliteLux obligates its suppliers to comply with EliteLux’s supplier expectations, including the requirement that they not utilize forced, prison, or indentured labor, or subject workers to any form of compulsion or coercion. EliteLux’s suppliers are obligated to expect the same standards of their suppliers in turn.

Suppliers that fail to meet EliteLux’s expectations are terminated.
