The following disclosures are made as required by the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (Section 1714.43 of the California Civil Code) (referred to in this disclosure as the “Act”).

To what extent, if any, does Bradford White Corporation:

Bradford White Corporation does not at this time engage in verification of product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery. If; however, Bradford White Corporation is advised of a suspected supplier violation of human trafficking and slavery standards, then Bradford White Corporation will address the matter with the supplier.

(3) Require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. Bradford White Corporation generally requires suppliers to be in compliance with all applicable manufacturing and trade laws and is prepared to request certification from suppliers that they comply with applicable laws regarding slavery and human trafficking if Bradford White Corporation is advised of a suspected violation.
