California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, 2010

United States of America Current 2010

In effect since 2012, the Act seeks to ensure that large retailers and manufacturers (above $100,000,000 in annual world-wide revenues) provide consumers with information regarding their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains and to educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains. By doing this, California hopes to improve the lives of victims of slavery and human trafficking.
