The Modern Slavery Act (2015) obliges all organisations, including universities, whose annual turnover exceeds £36 million, to produce an annual statement that describes the steps they have taken to ensure there is no modern slavery in their own business and their supply chains. If no such steps have been taken, then the annual statement must make this clear. The annual statement applies from the financial year ended 31 July 2016 onwards. The statement must be included on institutions’ websites, and must have a prominent link from the home page.
