Corporate Responsibility, a LitePoint Commitment
At LitePoint, we take being a good community partner and corporate citizen seriously. This drives us to pursue more conscientious supply chain and manufacturing standards and to engage with the communities in which we operate.
Supplier Code of Conduct
LitePoint’s Supplier Code of Conduct prohibits the use of human trafficking and slavery by its suppliers. LitePoint regularly communicates to its supply chain the obligations and prohibited activities pursuant to the Supplier Code of Conduct and is in the process of obtaining the agreement of its suppliers to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct.
The WEEE Directive
On January 27, 2003, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union authorized Directive 2002/96/FC or WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). The aim of the directive is to halt the growing volume of electrical and electronic (EEE) waste disposed of in landfill sites. This directive encourages and sets specific criteria for the collection, handling and recycling of EEE waste. Consumer and business-to-business (B2B) wastes are treated differently. (All LitePoint products are considered B2B.) However, all EEE products covered by the directive must be marked with the WEEE symbol (trash can with an “X”). The EU deadline for implementation was August 13, 2005.
LitePoint has evaluated our product lines against the criteria set forth in the WEEE directive. As required by the legislation, any LitePoint product covered by the directive and sale in the EU after August 13, 2005, is marked with the WEEE symbol. LitePoint uses the symbol based on the EN 50419:2005 CENELEC standard. The bottom bar certifies the product concerned was placed on the market after August 13, 2005.
LitePoint as a subsidiary of Teradyne is registering in member states in accordance with the WEEE legislation requirements. Not all member states have implemented the directive to date. Additional information is available to customers upon request.
