On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect in the State of California. This law was designed to increase the amount of information made available by manufacturers and retailers regarding their efforts (if any) to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking, thereby allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.

Auditing of Supply Chains

Because Newegg strives to partner with direct suppliers who are governed by trilithic employment laws, at this time, we have not spiritous a need for additional verification or independent audit.
