Modern Slavery Act 2015: slavery and human trafficking statement

This statement, made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 for the financial year ended 31 December 2016, sets out the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or supply chains.

We are a UK subsidiary of Samsung SDS, a global software solutions and IT services company. We provide software and solutions for enterprise mobility, security, analytics, and mobile sales and training. We operate in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Russia and CIS.

We are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in all our corporate activities and our supply chains:

• We adopted a new anti-slavery policy in order to help prevent slavery and human trafficking. We believe that our policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
• To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we have made our anti-slavery policy available online via our Group Compliance Program Management System (G-CPMS) and encouraged our employees to peruse our anti-slavery policy.

We recently started to market software solutions developed by small or medium sized companies in the UK but our main suppliers are our group companies in Korea. Accordingly, we consider that there is a very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.

We will review the effectiveness of our policy periodically. .
