tiscreport.org is the World's largest Open Data Register committed to ending Modern Slavery and supply chain labour abuses, joining up Transparency In Supply Chains (TISC) reporting globally. As an open data initiative, it meets the compliance requirements of section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 of the Home Office, and was announced at the Home Office TISC event on the 21st March 2016.
Our Corporate Structure
Tiscreport.org was created and maintained entirely by Semantrica Ltd, a small independent UK social enterprise, company number 09001464. We put public benefit before profit. To this end we have three tiers of governance; a Data Strategy Board, a Business Advisory Panel and an overarching Governance Board. Together, we have incorporated our public benefit mission into our corporate structure by being a b-corp (pending).
How we fund ourselves
The register is makes its income purely by commercial membership fees, service fees and sponsorship from organisations using our site. The proceeds of membership fees are split equally between the UK Modern Slavery Helpline (run by Unseen) and the TISCreport register.

Who we're inspired by
We have some very amazing supporters who have all in some way inspired us and helped us to get this far. Here are a few...
‘ICC UK is very pleased to support Unseen and their work on transparency in supply chains and tackling Modern Slavery. ICC contributed to the development of the transparency legislation and guidance under Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act and we believe it’s a brilliant example of innovative legislation harnessing the knowledge and power of business to make a truly positive contribution to society. This is a founding goal of ICC and why we are so keen to support what Unseen is doing in partnership with others.’
“I’m delighted Jaya is pursuing this incredibly important initiative. She is a fantastic tech leader and this project will do a huge amount to raise awareness of this important issue!” Minister Ed Vaizey
"To tackle slavery we can't keep doing what we've always done. Only through collaboration, transparency and the power of technology can we innovate our way to a fairer world. I encourage all businesses to not only submit their statements to tiscreport.org, but to make the words count. Share the data that will help to ensure slavery has no place left to hide." - Baroness Martha Lane Fox
“I am delighted to support the initiatives being spearheaded by the award winning charity Unseen. The new UK-wide modern slavery helpline will give victims, statutory agencies, non-government organisations, businesses and members of the public, not only in Wales but across the UK, vital support to tackle slavery. Also Unseen is partnering with the social enterprise Semantrica to provide a central registry for businesses to file their annual transparency statements. The introduction of the central register will becomes a crucial tool in maximising transparency and fully supporting the important business partnerships we are developing across Wales.” Stephen Chapman, Wales Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator
"Our business community is fully committed to pro-actively working on how we can help raise awareness of the abhorrent slavery which exists Today and we are working with Unseen, Semantrica and many other partners and of course the Modern Slavery Act to do all we can to eradicate it. With over 18,000 members in Bristol and across the South West we are determined that business will help to take the lead." James Durie, CEO of Bristol Chamber of Commerce & Initiative
"I'm never surprised at the ingenuity, drive and passion I find in entrepreneurial Asian women. Jaya is one of those women, determined to save the world with her skills, through her sheer force of will and integrity. Of the 35 million human lives living in slavery, 14 million of those are Indian, a larger proportion than any other country in the world. That she has chosen to combat modern slavery speaks volumes. There is an obligation many of us non-resident Indians feel about addressing the inequality that affects our motherland, and the world at large. I strongly support Jaya in her mission and urge every company to submit their statements every year to https://tiscreport.org. Be a part of the solution. Make sure you are one of them." Pinky Lilani CBE, DL, Asian Women of Achievement Awards
"I am delighted that Jaya has set this site up. She is a credit to the business community and for making sure that business is about more than just profit. Businesses have a duty to be socially responsible and reflect the areas where they operate. In Bristol I look forward to supporting this new website, tiscreport.org, and making sure that major businesses in our city take this issue very seriously. As a minimum, we will require all BCC suppliers above the Modern Slavery Act 2015 threshold to submit regular anti-slavery statements to tiscreport.org to encourage transparency of actions that will lead to the end of modern slavery here in our city. " Mayor George Ferguson, City of Bristol
Finally, the Home Office has been instrumental in delivering anti-slavery legislation that has real teeth, and we are grateful to them for this, as it provides social enterprises like us the opportunity to play our part in the war against slavery as a civil society register.
