Novati verifies product supply chains through the use of trusted vendors and verification of suppliers on the government debarred and denied parties lists. Novati does not use third parties for verification. Novati requires all suppliers to agree as a condition of contract that they will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. Non-US suppliers are expected to comply with their local laws as well as applicable laws of the United States.
Novati does not conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with company standards – specifically for trafficking and slavery in supply chains. To report suspected violations of human trafficking and slavery Novati has established a hotline at 1-512-356-2190. Novati promptly investigates all reported matters and takes action as needed, including disclosure to governmental authorities as appropriate.
Novati requires as a condition of contract that all suppliers commit to comply with applicable laws and regulations, but does not require suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business.
