California Supply Chain Act

VIPluxpets is committed to the responsible and ethical sourcing of products and our suppliers are required to comply with our requirements and the applicable legal requirements of the countries in which they conduct business.  We focus our auditing attention on suppliers that source from or operate within higher-risk regions. We engage in the following activities to help ensure our suppliers share our commitment to the ethical souring of products and the eradication of slavery and human trafficking.

SUPPLIER AUDITS. Our suppliers are generally required to permit us or a third party to conduct audits for compliance with our requirements and the applicable legal requirements. These audits may be conducted on site and may include discussions with workers and managers and a review of facilities and relevant documentation.  Violations of our requirements or applicable legal requirements may result in termination of the supplier or submission of a detailed corrective action plan.

SUPPLIER COMPLIANCE. Our suppliers are required to comply with our requirements and the applicable legal requirements of the countries in which they conduct business.  Direct suppliers of private label goods also attest in writing that they comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct.

TRAINING. We offer training to our employees and management who are responsible for supply chain management to bring awareness to and understanding of human trafficking, slavery, and other responsible sourcing issues, and how to mitigate such risks within our supply chain.
