TSM Preventing Child and Forced Labour Protocol

The purpose of the verification protocol is to provide guidance to the member companies on verification requirements regarding the prevention of child labour and forced labour. The verification protocol sets out the general approach taken to verifying that processes are in place to ensure that neither child or forced labour as defined by ILO conventions are occurring at TSM participating facilities.

As with any assessment of a management system, professional judgment is required in assessing the degree of implementation of a system indicator and the quality of management processes and intervention. Application of this protocol will therefore require a level of expertise in auditing and systems assessment and knowledge of and experience in the practice of labour practices, including relevant regulatory regimes and requirements. This protocol provides an indicator of the verification approach to ensuring child and forced labour are not used and must be used in conjunction with the TSM Verification Service Provider Terms of Reference. It is not, of itself, a guarantee of the effectiveness of labour practices.
