I do agree with this statement. Magnitude Software Ltd does take this opinion on modern slavery

Understanding where the risk of modern slavery occurs, and assessing its level of importance, ensures that companies are able to put the most appropriate remedies in place. Disclosing in a modern slavery statement where this risk is helps to illustrate the effectiveness of risk assessment tools outlined in the previous metric.

For further information on this metric please refer to the Home Office Guidance on page 34-35 and Walk Free Foundation Guidance, pp.18-19.


Does the company’s statement identify the greatest risks of modern slavery in its organisation and supply chain? The company must explicitly state the specific regions, industries, resources or type of workforce where the risk is greatest.

This can refer to:

  1. Geographic - exposure may be greater in countries where protection against breaches of human rights are limited, particularly for migrant workers.

  2. Industry - certain industries are more at risk of modern slavery than others. For example, those working in the extractives industry may differ to the risk in manufacturing.

  3. Resource - some resources are more associated with modern slavery than others. For example, the extraction of mica or palm oil has been associated with high levels of debt bondage.

  4. Workforce - some workers are more vulnerable to modern slavery than others. For example, temporary, seasonal or migrant workers may not be covered by local labour laws, or may not be as aware of their rights.

Please note this metric requires an explicit statement of the risk and where it occurs, it cannot apply to general statements about high levels of risk.

If a company lists countries or geographic regions (such as South Asia) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Geographic” value.

If a company identifies specific industries (such as the mining or apparel industry) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Industry” value.

If a company identifies specific resources (such as mica or palm oil) as being associated with modern slavery, please select the “Resource” value.

If a company describes a specific type of worker that is vulnerable to modern slavery, please select the “Workforce” value.

Please select as many values as apply.

If the business indicates if it will identify risks specific to modern slavery or is planning to do so in the future, please indicate “In Development”.

Where there are no details of specific risks, please give a “No” value.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the type of risk that you wish to include is not listed, please add a comment and flag the section for review.

* Note on choosing the Year of your answer

Read the MSA Statement carefully to find out what year it covers. For instance, if the statement relates to activities and actions undertaken in the period January - October 2016, choose 2016 as your answer's year.

Companies may report in fiscal years (FY) that include months from two different calendar years. In this case, please use the latest calendar year cited. For instance, a report for FY 2016/17 should be used for adding data for the year 2017.
