We regularly review our HR policies and procedures to comply with applicable laws and safeguard the rights and freedoms of all employees. This includes policies on working conditions, discrimination, health and safety, and data protection.

Risk Assessment

An annual risk assessment, both internal and external, on modern slavery and human trafficking is conducted by our Legal, Human Resources, and Finance teams.

IMS Trading acknowledges the potential risks through our third-party suppliers and our focus is on minimizing these risks through diligent supplier assessment and strong contractual commitments.

The due diligence and reviews include the following actions:
