Human rights

CHILD LABOUR

No child works within the Virbac Group. As concerns the main suppliers, Virbac's ethical assessment questionnaire commits them to abide by child labor legislation. In 2017, none of the suppliers questioned failed to live up to this criterion. Should Virbac identify a non-compliant supplier, the latter would be required by the Group to comply, or else have its contract terminated.

FORCED OR MANDATORY LABOUR
Forced labor does not exist in the Virbac Group. Regarding its main suppliers, compliance with the fundamental International Labor Organization (ILO) agreements, including the prohibition of forced labor, is included in all new contracts. In 2017, none of the suppliers questioned failed to live up to this criterion. Should Virbac identify a non-compliant supplier, the latter would be required by the Group to comply, or else have its contract terminated.
 
ASSESSMENT OF THE RESPECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AMONG SUPPLIERS

For every invitation to tender, and for main suppliers (nearly 90% of the value of purchases of raw materials and subcontracting), Virbac administers a questionnaire to assess their compliance with human rights: age of employees, the existence of a health and safety policy and the absence of discrimination. Since 2015, new framework contracts have included a provision requiring compliance with these standards. In 2017, the assessment process carried out by Virbac with its new suppliers did not identify any relevant risks. Should Virbac identify a non-compliant supplier, the latter would be required by the Group to comply, or else have its contract terminated.
