Fourth, as part of Dometic’s supplier contract policy, Dometic requires each supplier to represent, as a condition of contract that “(i) it is not aware that such sources are in any way engaged in human trafficking and slavery; (ii) it will, if asked by Dometic, request its sources to confirm same are in compliance with standards for preventing human trafficking and slavery; (iii) that materials incorporated into Supplier’s products are believed to comply with laws regarding human trafficking and slavery; and (iv) Supplier will train its own procurement staff if necessary in order to mitigate risks of purchasing from companies which may be in violation of laws regarding human trafficking and slavery.”
