Verify Identities of Known High-Risk Companies
You need to determine whether your suppliers show up in these reports, but inconsistent company name translations and scant identifiers present a challenge. Avoid these pitfalls by verifying names and identifying information (e.g. addresses, ID numbers, Chinese/English names) in official sources.
Look for Indicators of Forced Labor in Public Records
Use Chinese public records to identify companies at high risk for labor abuses before they are exposed in the media or targeted by regulators. Look for the following indicators of forced labor in Chinese manufacturing, all of which can be found in public records.
Screen Beneficial Owners and Related Companies
If one of your supplier’s parents or subsidiaries employs forced labor, your supply chain could still be exposed. Using Sayari Graph, you can surface these indicators across millions of Chinese corporate records and proactively identify forced labor risk in your supply chain.
