Does the company’s statement identify the suppliers or map out the country or geographic region where its supply chains are based? The mapping can include a list of the names of suppliers, or list of the specific countries or regions where goods are sourced. Some company statements include graphs or pie charts indicating where their company supply chain is based.

Please note this metric requires a list of the names of countries and/or suppliers, not a statement outlining the total number of countries or suppliers.

If the company specifies at least one region, country or area that feeds into their supply chain, the answer should be “Geographical”.

If the company discloses a list of suppliers, the answer should be “Facility/Supplier”.

If the company specifies both a region, country or area AND a list of suppliers, then please select both values, “Geographical” and “Facility/Supplier”.

If no such disclosure exists, then please select “No”.

Please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement.

Example for “Geographical” value

* Note on choosing the Year of your answer

Read the MSA Statement carefully to find out what year it covers.

When a statement is referring to a Financial Year (FY) ending in Q1 or early Q2, it should be labeled with the previous year. Example:

Statement for FY2018/19 ending in April 2019 = 2018
Statement for FY2018/19 ending in May 2019 (or later) = 2019


Most companies reporting under the UK Modern Slavery Act would have complex supply chains covering many countries and suppliers. It is therefore important that a company identifies or maps out their supply chain. Disclosing all suppliers and geographic regions within a modern slavery statement illustrates that a company is serious about assessing risks within their supply chain.
