On September 4, 2018, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) published the Notice relating to modern slavery disclosure requirements. The notice provides issuers with guidance on their modern slavery disclosure requirements so that they can determine what information they need to disclose and can improve or complete that information.

Modern slavery, which can take a variety of forms, includes any work or service performed by a person involuntarily and under the threat of any penalty.

The notice provides an overview of recent key regulatory or government initiatives and highlights investors’ growing interest in the social responsibility of issuers. It also describes some of the requirements that may compel issuers to provide information on modern slavery in their continuous disclosure documents and presents the results of an issue-oriented review by AMF staff of the disclosure practices of certain issuers.

Review the press release and notice on the AMF's website.
