Integrated Device Technology, Inc. provides this disclosure pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657). This Act requires certain companies to publicly disclose on their websites information regarding efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains for tangible goods offered for sale. The disclosure must cover the following: Verification of Product Supply Chains; Audits of Suppliers; Certification of Suppliers; Internal Accountability and Training.
Supplier Verification and Audit
IDT supports the Responsible Business Alliance, RBA, (formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)) and has adopted the RBA Code of Conduct. The RBA Code of Conduct addresses many corporate social responsibility issues such as Labor, Health and Safety, Environmental, Ethics, a Commitment to Continuous Improvement, Legal Compliance, as well as establishing a Management System whose scope is related to the contents of the RBA Code of Conduct. The RBA Code of Conduct, for example, prohibits the use of forced, bonded, indentured labor, or involuntary prison labor. IDT expects its suppliers to comply with these standards regardless of location or customs. Certain suppliers must complete self-assessment questionnaires in order for IDT to evaluate the supplier’s risk on several levels. The assessment provides the necessary information for IDT to determine if further investigation is warranted. A third party does not conduct the verifications. IDT reserves the right to conduct internal and on-site supplier audits to evaluate supplier compliance with IDT standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains. IDT has not engaged in independent, unannounced audits.
IDT has master purchasing agreements or purchase order terms and conditions in place with its suppliers, requiring them to comply with international standards and applicable laws and regulations. In addition, IDT expects its suppliers to adopt and abide by the RBA Code, which prohibits forced labor and child labor.
Internal Accountability & Training
IDT requires all IDT employees to comply with its Code of Business Ethics, and employees undergo training and certify compliance with the Code of Business Ethics every other year. IDT actively engages in job-specific training for employees who are responsible for supply chain management on how to identify and respond to supply chain issues in accordance with IDT standards and policies, which are aligned with the RBA Code.
