Introduction

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the United Kingdom (UK) Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) which requires companies carrying on business in the U.K. to publish a statement describing steps taken to ensure modern forms of slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in the company’s business operations and supply chains. This statement sets out of the steps taken by RIMOWA for the current fiscal year to ensure that slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking (collectively, “Modern Slavery”) is not taking place in any part of its business or in its supply chains.

RIMOWA carefully reviews its suppliers.

RIMOWA reserves the right to check adherence of its suppliers and contractors to the principles set out in the Suppliers’ Code of Conduct and to conduct compliance audits at any time without notice. Upon reasonable request, RIMOWA suppliers and contractors shall supply the necessary information and grant access to RIMOWA representatives to verify compliance with the requirements of the Suppliers’ Code of Conduct. Suppliers and contractors shall further keep proper records to provide compliance with this Code and provide access to complete, original and accurate files to RIMOWA representatives.

Upon reasonable request, RIMOWA suppliers and contractors must improve and correct any deficiency discovered during any such audits. RIMOWA reserves the right to terminate supplier relationships where a supplier is in breach of our Supplier Code of Conduct.

RIMOWA shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that all RIMOWA supplier and contractor template contracts contain clauses requiring RIMOWA’s suppliers and contractors to adopt similar anti-modern slavery standards and practices.
