Lake Region Medical Statement of Compliance with California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 567)
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”) became effective January 1, 2012 in the State of California. The Act requires that certain
companies doing business in California disclose their efforts to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains.
Lake Region Medical maintains a Code of Responsibilities which is directly aligned with the intent and objectives of the Act. Specifically, our Code of Responsibilities requires, among other things, that our direct suppliers (“suppliers”) ensure that they do not engage in or support forced, bonded, indentured or prison labor as well as unlawful under age labor.
The Lake Region Medical Code of Responsibilities is publicly available on our internet website (http://www.lakeregionmedical.com). The document is also posted internally on our intranet for review and reference by our employees. Lake Region Medical is communicating the requirements and expectations stated within our Code of Responsibilities to our primary suppliers through direct training and specific language incorporated in our purchase orders and contracts. Lake Region Medical may conduct announced or unannounced audits of our primary suppliers to ensure adherence to our Code of Responsibilities requirements and will take immediate corrective action based upon any deficiencies observed or noted.
