Ethical Supplier Register incorporated in uniforms and PPE procurement guide

The Guide to procuring uniforms and PPE and the model clauses have been revised to incorporate the Ethical Supplier Register.

19/03/19 22.00pm

The Ethical Supplier Register lists suppliers of locally manufactured corporate clothing, uniforms, workwear and PPE (personal protective equipment).

The registered suppliers have (or are in the process of having) their local manufacturing supply chain ethically accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia or verified by an independent third party.

The accreditation processes assure compliance with relevant labour laws relating to wages, awards and working conditions.

Government organisations are required to buy locally manufactured uniforms and PPE from registered suppliers on the Ethical Supplier Register.

The model clauses allow that suppliers don't need to be registered to respond to an invitation to supply for uniforms and PPE. But if their offer includes locally manufactured goods then the supplier must be registered prior to contract execution.

The model clauses may be tailored by buyers to meet the requirements of their procurement.

Visit the Uniforms and personal protective equipment page to read about the Ethical Supplier Register.
