California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

Simpson Door Company (Simpson) supports the goals of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act and is dedicated to conducting business in a lawful and ethical manner.

Simpson reports the following progress in accordance with the Act:

Verification

Simpson has no formal verification process in place to evaluate and address the risks of human trafficking and slavery in its supply chain. However, Simpson’s purchase order terms and conditions require its suppliers to comply with all laws, which would include those regarding slave labor and human trafficking in the countries where we do business.

Auditing

Simpson believes that its suppliers are at a low risk of engaging in slavery or human trafficking; therefore, Simpson does not engage in audits of its suppliers to evaluate compliance.

Certification

Although Simpson does not currently have a formal certification process to assess the risks in its supply chain, we have a zero tolerance toward suppliers and vendors who are not open, transparent and cooperative. All of our manufacturing partners must abide by the laws of the country in which they are doing business.

Accountability

If forced or bonded labor are discovered, we would require that the supplier correct the problem immediately and we would launch an investigation into the issue. Our approach to manufacturing and sales is to establish and maintain long-term partners that share our values and to quickly correct any issues that may arise. In extreme cases of systemic non-compliance, we reserve the right to terminate the business partnership.

Training and education

Simpson does not conduct training for its employees on human trafficking and slavery; however, Simpson does have a formal import compliance program, and it does periodically train its employees regarding compliance with U.S. import laws and sustainability in its supply chain.
