Business Continuity Management

NXP prepares and plans for interruptions affecting all or part of the organization, so we can minimize the effects of potential incidents and ensure the ability to continue business operations.

Approach

Our comprehensive approach to business continuity and risk management includes an executive-level team that receives reports from individual site teams with specific business-resumption activities.

During a crisis, all groups interact with each other and, if necessary, escalate issues to the Corporate Business Continuity Team.

Training and Testing

  • Training

    Our manufacturing sites and main design and office sites prepare for events using on-the-job training and/or site-developed trainings that cover key roles and how to handle site-specific scenarios.

  • Drills

    Our sites conduct drills, at least annually, to test the effectiveness of the continuity plan for a wide range of potential disruptions. This includes interruptions caused by equipment failures, by externally provided products, processes and services, by natural disasters, fires, utility interruptions, or labor shortages and disruptions, including IT issues and cyber-attacks.

Notification

Site-level and community-level emergency alerts notify us if there are chemical spills, fires, earthquakes, typhoons, floods, explosions and other events so responses can begin quickly, at the site, local and/or regional level. We also have a geographic information system that includes the latitudes and longitudes of the manufacturing locations of our various suppliers.

Teams receive emails whenever events happen, and this immediately triggers a due-diligence assessment and an action-planning process. We reach out to manufacturing sites and vendors in the proximity of an emergency, and if there may be an impact to our supply continuity, we take mitigation actions. Proactive and timely communication with our customers is part of this response.
