SciQuip conducts business in accordance with the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Codes.
Our policy is committed to:
- Act in an ethical manner and comply with statutory and legal requirements, promoting good labour and ethical standards in the supply chain of goods and services.
- Form an evaluation and selection criteria for all goods purchased by, and services provided to SciQuip through detailed analysis of external providers, researched and documented information.
- Encourage suppliers to follow a Code of Conduct based on the code developed by the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), which is an alliance of companies, non-governmental organisations and trade union members who are working towards worldwide ethical standards of trading. Whilst SciQuip is not a full member of the Ethical Trading Initiative alliance, SciQuip fully endorses their principles.
This policy forms a formal part of the organisations quality management principles and will be subsequently communicated and reviewed at regular intervals.
