The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) requires large employers to be transparent about their efforts to eradicate Slavery and Human Trafficking in their Supply Chain
The Act makes provisions about slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour and about human trafficking, including provision for the protection of victims. In accordance with the Act, this statement articulates our policies and practices around recognising and preventing human trafficking and slavery in the global supply chain.

General Dynamics United Kingdom Limited is committed to maintaining and improving systems and processes to avoid complicity in human rights violations related to our own operations, our supply chain, and our products. General Dynamics UK realises that slavery and human trafficking can occur in many forms, such as forced labour, child labour, domestic servitude, sex trafficking, and workplace abuse. Therefore, throughout this disclosure we use the terms “slavery and human trafficking” to encompass these various forms of coerced labour.
As discussed below, we take specific steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains or other parts of our business.
Our commitment to human rights which covers topics such as forced labour, slavery, child labour, sex trafficking, workplace abuse and human trafficking is outlined in the General Dynamics Standards of Business Ethics and Conduct (the Blue Book) and our Combating Trafficking in Persons policy (CTR-POL-3).
