NXP® Semiconductors is committed to respecting rights and upholding the values and high standards of ethics as expressed in our NXP Code of Conduct. NXP has a zero-tolerance policy for slavery and trafficking.
In 2015, the International Labour Organization reports that almost 21 million people are victims of forced labor. NXP is aware that slavery and trafficking is an issue within the semiconductor industry. It is NXP’s policy that we and our suppliers shall not traffic in persons or use any form of slave, forced, bonded, indentured, or prison labor. This includes the transportation, harboring, recruitment, transfer, or receipt of persons by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, fraud, or payments to any person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation. NXP allows all employees the freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, the abolition of child labor and the elimination of discrimination. NXP forbids suppliers and recruiters from charging fees to employees during recruitment processes, or withholding government issued documents.
NXP expects our suppliers to respect rights, including maintaining policies and procedures to prevent the use of forced labor. Our suppliers are obliged to comply with NXP’s Supplier Code of Conduct and all applicable laws, rules and regulations. The NXP Supplier Code of Conduct uses the structure and contains language from the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® (EICC®) Code of Conduct, and includes additional, NXP specific requirements on slavery and trafficking.
NXP continues to update its policies, procedures and training as needed to seek appropriate safeguards in its operations and supply chain.
