Ethical Supplier Register incorporated in uniforms and PPE procurement guide

The Guide to procuring uniforms and personal protective equipment (PPE) and the model clauses have been revised to incorporate the Ethical Supplier Register.

19/03/19 22.00pm

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

The Ethical Supplier Register lists suppliers of locally manufactured:

  • corporate clothing
  • uniforms
  • workwear
  • PPE (personal protective equipment)

The registered suppliers have (or are in the process of having) their local manufacturing supply chain:

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

The model clauses allow that suppliers don't need to be registered to respond to an invitation to supply for uniforms and PPE.

However, if their offer includes locally manufactured goods, they must be registered before contract execution.

Buyers can revise the model clauses to meet the requirements of their procurement.

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