Statement on Modern Slavery


This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the MSA) and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement of Traqplan Limited. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking and are committed to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains or in any parts of our business.

Our organisation's structure

Traqplan has 2 employees. Our operations are primarily based within the United Kingdom. We do not own any subsidiaries. We primarily use services of UK based contractors and freelancers.

Our supply chains

Our main supply chains are:

  • Professional services (software development and IT support)
  • Third party providers of software products
  • Within these categories we believe the following types of goods and services contract are likely to carry the highest risks in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking:

  • Software development
  • Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

    We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

    Traqplan's purchasing policy has been updated and approved by CEO will be communicated to key stakeholders shortly. The updated policy reflects our commitment to act with integrity and ethically in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls, including in relation to combatting modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains.

    Traqplan has a whistleblowing policy in place that is intended to provide a process for and protection to our workers who wish to raise genuine concerns regarding, amongst other things, our business practices. This is reviewed periodically to ensure it is consistent with recent legal developments and recommended good practice as well as making express reference to modern slavery in a supply chain as an example of a potential concern staff might disclose under the policy.

    What we are doing now

    Implementing a contract lifecycle management programme. This includes:

  • Identification and training of a limited number of key individuals who have authority to purchase material goods and services.
  • A contracts repository. We are in the process implementing a central contracts repository and process for reviewing contracts prior to completion. The process will include checks to identify risks types, including modern slavery. It will also identify the contract manager and signpost where guidance on MSA is provided and what the responsibilities of the contract manager are in identifying, managing and mitigating risks.
  • We will train contract managers in the requirement for appropriate due diligence for new suppliers with whom we contract, which will include modern slavery checks.
  • We have updated standard terms and conditions of purchasing, which will include provisions concerning compliance with applicable modern slavery laws.
  • Developing the policies and supporting practices referred to above.

    A modern slavery review is included in our business board reviews for the following purposes:

  • To identification and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • To continue to establish how to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • To continuing to monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains and consider proportionate ways to ensure compliance by our suppliers.
  • To continue to commit to the protection of whistle blowers and to encourage the reporting of genuine concerns, including in respect of modern slavery and human trafficking.
  • To consider appropriate, effective and proportionate ways of raising staff awareness.
  • To provide input on the above referred to policies which are in development.
  • This statement was approved by the Managing Director of Traqplan on 17 April 2022.
