Modern Slavery Act | RBS

Modern Slavery Act

We take a proactive approach to upholding our commitment to respect human rights, and identifying and mitigating potential human rights issues across our business and our wider sphere of influence. The Modern Slavery Act (MSA) 2015, forms part of our approach to human rights as this regulation brings together the serious criminal offences of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking together under one piece of legislation. In 2018, we published our second annual statement on the MSA on This builds upon our existing policy framework.

This includes:

  • Reviewing our policy framework, to ensure it meets MSA requirements
  • Identifying and addressing high risks within our business and supply chain
  • Providing bespoke training and raising awareness.
