To apply the Code of conduct and become a participating party (“Participating party”), the enterprise needs to confirm its support for Code of conduct as well as strict compliance with its below standards.
Participating parties must reckon the Code of conduct as the first step of whole supply chain. The participating party at least require the next vendors to recognize and implement this set of rules.
The basic principle to apply the Code is to understand that a business must, in all its activities, comply fully with the laws, rules and regulations of the countries where it operates. The code encourages Participating Party to not only perform more than merely legal adherence, but also follow internationally recognized standards, thereby enhance environmental and social responsibility, as well as ethics in business. In line with the United Nations Principles for Business and Human Rights, the provisions of this Code originates from important international human rights standards, including the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work of the ILO (International Labor Organization) and the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights.
