On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 became effective, requiring retail sellers and manufacturers with annual worldwide gross receipts over $100 million doing business in the state of California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains.
The Act, which applies to more than 3,000 companies - many of which are large consumer brands - aims to give consumers the information to help them make purchasing decisions that will help eradicate slavery and human trafficking. According to the Act,
"Absent publicly available disclosures, consumers are at a disadvantage in being able to distinguish companies on the merits of their efforts to supply products free from the taint of slavery and trafficking. Consumers are at a disadvantage in being able to force the eradication of slavery and trafficking by way of their purchasing decisions."
Symantec supports the passage of the Act and, in compliance with the Act, has published a statement of disclosure
