Our Supply Chain

KX Global has adopted both the EICC Code of Conduct and BSCI Code of Conduct, which prohibits the use of forced, bonded, indentured labour or involuntary prison labour. We audit our suppliers to these Codes and do not tolerate any form of non-conformance. In addition, we deploy internal policies and practices that are based on international labour and human rights standards. We partner with our supply chain to create an environment where workers have the right to freely choose employment and where slavery and human trafficking is not tolerated in all its forms.

Due Diligence & Risk Assessment
We perform assessments of potential suppliers as well as carrying out regular risk screenings of our supply chain. we also conducts internal audits and onsite supplier audits, as deemed necessary, to verify our supply chains’ conformance to the EICC & BSCI Code of Conduct and related law, standards and policies. These audits are conducted by our internal team and utilise the standardised audit protocols developed by the EICC & BSCI. We follow up with each audited supplier to develop corrective action plans and close the audit findings only when required standard has been achieved.

Employee Recruitment & Training
As part of our recruitment procedure we use 3rd party employment agencies on the British employment standards basis with full rights under UK employment laws.

KX Global believe in the importance of educating its employees on human rights issues and is currently developing training for relevant employees to help them to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through this training, our employees will be encouraged to use our reporting procedures to report their findings and concerns.

Further Actions
To ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains we intend to collaborate with suppliers to develop appropriate risk-based processes that will enable us to work together in a collaborative effort to meet the requirements of The Modern Slavery Act.

We also aim to improve awareness and understanding of how and where issues may occur and how we may be able to prevent them.

Conflict Minerals Statement 

Introduction

The mining of certain minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the adjoining countries partially contributes to significant human rights abuses and to the financing of violent conflicts in this region. In 2010, U.S. Congress passed legislation that is usually referred to as “Dodd-Frank Act” (full name: “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act”). Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) require companies who file reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain “conflict minerals” that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of those products. “Conflict minerals” contain tantalum, tin, tungsten (and the ores from which they originate) gold and diamond, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold.

Johnson (UK) Ltd (and its divisional companies) does not file reports with the SEC and therefore has no legislative obligations to comply with the conflict minerals requirements covered in Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act. However, we recognise the SEC final ruling for Section 1502 which mandates our direct and indirect customers to undertake due diligence across their global supply chains.

Our Statement

We do not purchase any material that contains these “conflict minerals” which directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC or an adjoining country. We have adopted EICC due diligence processes to understand where “conflict minerals” are being used and to determine the source and the origin within our customer base and their supply chain. These actions are based on established frameworks of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and from other private sector initiatives. We periodically conduct surveys within our customer base and will continue to work closely with customers and other stakeholders to ensure good practices and feasible solutions where required.

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of CHemicals)

The European Regulation 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006)

Johnson (UK) Ltd and its division Konstrox Global (known as “KX GLOBAL.co.uk” collectively) complies with EU REACH regulations. As manufactured products are subjected to the REACH Article, it discharges its Duty to communicate information on substances in articles as follows:

Obligations according to Article 33
The aim of Article 33 is to ensure that sufficient information is communicated down the supply chain to allow the safe use of articles.

A supplier of articles containing a SVHC included on the Candidate List for authorisation in a concentration above 0.1% (w/w) has to provide relevant safety information about this substance available to him to the recipients of these articles (Article 33(1)).

If no particular information is necessary to allow safe use of the article containing a substance from the Candidate List, as a minimum the name of the substance in question has to be communicated to the recipients.

The information is to be provided to the recipients automatically, i.e. as soon as the substance has been included on the Candidate List for authorisation. Note that the term “recipients” refers to industrial or professional users and distributors, but not to consumers.

Upon request by a consumer, the same supplier of the articles has to provide relevant safety information about the SVHC available to him also to this consumer (Article 33(2)). The consumer has to be provided with this information within 45 calendar days of the request free of charge.
