The profession has a role to play

Following the recent announcement by the Home office and Karen Bradley MP, regarding the intention to ensure supply chains are slavery – free under the forthcoming Modern Slavery Bill.

David Noble, Group CEO, CIPS said,

“CIPS is delighted to hear the news from Karen Bradley MP regarding the measure to re-introduce supply chain reporting into the Modern Day Slavery Bill. The importance and value of good management of supply chains cannot be underestimated in these discussions and the profession has a huge role to play.

"This move will firmly underpin the work CIPS has been doing to ensure we have greater accountability and capability within the profession – something we firmly believe can happen when the concept of a professional licence is widely accepted for procurement and supply professionals."
