CommScope maintains a reliable supply chain supported by a wide variety of expertise. In addition to our size, reach and operational precision, this diverse supply chain positions us to create effective forms of networked communication. A medida que seguimos expandiéndonos y creciendo hacia nuevos mercados, trabajamos con diligencia para apoyar la diversidad entre nuestros empleados y dentro de nuestras relaciones con los proveedores. Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we promote mutually beneficial relationships with small businesses and those owned by minorities, women and veterans. También seguimos mejorando nuestros procesos actuales de selección de proveedores, evaluación de riesgos y evaluación de rendimiento.

 

Supplier Evaluation

In selecting suppliers, CommScope applies a thorough system of checks and balances designed to minimize risk and maximize performance in our supply chain. Current and prospective suppliers undergo the selection, qualification and evaluation steps outlined below:

SustainChart  

Nuestro Equipo de evaluación y contratación (SET, por sus siglas en inglés) se compone de interesados con conocimiento sobre nuestra contratación, garantía de calidad, procesos de desarrollo de productos y otras áreas según sea necesario.

Para construir relaciones positivas a largo plazo, los ingenieros de calidad de proveedores supervisan las operaciones y realizan evaluaciones de riesgos iniciales y regulares y auditorías en el lugar con los proveedores de su región. También llevan a cabo evaluaciones de desempeño y hacen un seguimiento de las actividades de mejora.

All suppliers must acknowledge CommScope’s Supplier Code of Conduct. Our Supplier Quality Manual also outlines some of the basic CommScope expectations, with any variations being outlined in the individual supplier purchasing agreement. All relevant suppliers are expected to follow principles and requirements detailed in our Conflict Minerals Policy, Environmental Product Compliance Specification for Materials and Products including Restricted Substances List; and shall use the Full Material Disclosure Form to submit material content of the parts and/or materials supplied to CommScope.

Transparency in Supply Chain

CommScope se compromete a llevar a cabo su negocio de una manera ética, legal y socialmente responsable. We expect our suppliers to share this commitment; therefore, we have established our Supplier Code of Conduct.

Se espera que los proveedores de CommScope se adhieran a este código, el cual exige que manejen sus negocios de acuerdo con los estándares más altos de comportamiento ético y en conformidad con las leyes y regulaciones aplicables de los países, estados y localidades en donde operan. This includes, but is not limited to, laws and regulations relating to anti-corruption, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, and labor practices. We also expect our suppliers to take steps to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their operations and supply chain.

Responsible Minerals Sourcing

Mineral Sourcing

CommScope complies with the conflict minerals provisions in the Dodd Frank Act enacted in the U.S. This act requires publicly traded companies to disclose the source of certain minerals incorporated in or used to produce their products.

As a globally active, socially responsible company, CommScope partners only with reputable organizations to source the minerals and raw materials we use. Since we provide telecommunications equipment, our solutions may include gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten. These minerals are either necessary for product functionality or may be used in the production process.

We expect our suppliers to follow the same standard. This includes:

  • Avoiding the use of conflict minerals by sourcing materials only from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers
  • Complying with Dodd-Frank regulations regarding conflict minerals and providing CommScope with legally required compliance documentation 
  • Conducting a reasonable country-of-origin inquiry (RCOI) to determine the source of tungsten, tantalum, tin and gold (commonly referred to as the 3TGs)

We use the Conflict Minerals Due Diligence Reporting Template upheld by the Electronic Industry Citizen Coalition as a standard questionnaire for conducting an RCOI.

We take this issue very seriously and strongly encourage you to review our Conflict Minerals Policy and our 2017 Form SD and Conflict Minerals Report.
