California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 is a law that governs companies doing business in California. The Act was designed to increase the amount of information made available by manufacturers and retailers regarding their efforts to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking, thereby allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.

ZTEK conducts audits of our suppliers in the areas of quality, finance, safety, sustainability and to the extent to which they address human trafficking and slavery in their supply chains. The audit is not performed by a third party.
ZTEK contracts with our suppliers. Our terms and conditions require our suppliers to comply with all local laws including human trafficking and slavery laws in the countries in which they do business.
