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

  • 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

Emergency alerts notify us if there are earthquakes, typhoons, floods, explosions and other events. We also have a geographic information system that includes the latitudes and longitudes of the manufacturing locations of our various suppliers of materials. Teams receive emails whenever events happen, and this immediately triggers a due-diligence assessment and an action-planning process. We reach out to factories and vendors in the proximity of the crisis, and if there might be an impact to our supply continuity, we take mitigation actions. Proactive and timely communication with our customers is part of this response.
