• The CAA remains committed to ensuring best practice in combatting slavery and human trafficking in its own business activities and in its supply chains. The CAA therefore acknowledges its responsibility under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The CAA will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.

    As a public body, the CAA adheres to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. The Regulations govern how we buy goods, services and works and enshrine fundamental principles of transparency, equal treatment and non-discrimination in all public sector procurements irrespective of value. In that overall context, the CAA is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains or in any part of its business. 

    During this reporting year, we have not tendered or contracted for any new services that are deemed high risk to Modern Slavery. To that end, it is concluded that there have been no additional contracts let that have identified any Modern Slavery practices or risks. We do not consider that the Covid pandemic has led to an increased labour exploitation risk within our existing supply chain. 

    The CAA’s Chief Operating Officer remains responsible for the CAA’s policy on modern slavery and, together with the CAA’s Executive Committee, will continue to provide adequate investment and training to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation or within its supply chain. 

    This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the CAA and its subsidiaries’ (namely CAA International Ltd and Air Safety Support International) slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year 2020-2021
