Our commitment to ethics and compliance is an essential aspect and core value of how we do business globally. We have taken a five step approach to ensure that respect for human rights and the protection of the environment are priority considerations in the operation of our business:
Involve: Ensure employees, officers and directors are actively involved in the design and execution of policies and procedures that guide ethical business conduct.
Educate: Maintain awareness and ownership through communication and training.
Execute: Conduct our business in compliance with the Radisys Code of Conduct and Ethics and legal and regulatory requirements.
Improve: Continuously work to improve our policies and business practices and keep them updated and current to ensure they effectively support our commitment.
Comply: Ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
Code of Conduct and Ethics
The Radisys Code of Conduct and Ethics is a statement of the principles and expectations that guide ethical business conduct at our company. The Code is an extension of our values and the foundation of our business, and it reflects our shared commitment to ethical business practices and legal and regulatory compliance. Adherence to the principles in the Code is an expectation for all employees, officers, directors, contractors, suppliers or other agents of the company.
ISO Certification and Compliance
The Radisys Hillsboro site is certified and registered to ISO9001:2015 standards through SAI Global. The following document is the Radisys ISO9001:2015 Certificate of Registration.
The following document is the Radisys Declaration of Conformity indicating RoHS compliance for all Radisys Products. All applicable Radisys branded Hardware Products in production are compliant with the latest RoHS directives with any allowed exemptions as described in the declaration.
Responsible Sourcing Policy
Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Gold, commonly known as "3TG" metals, are widely used to manufacture many electronic components and products. However, these minerals, also known as "Conflict Minerals, "are mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or Conflict-affected or High-Risk Areas (CAHRAs), which directly or indirectly finances the armed groups, which in turn leads to human exploitation and conflict. Therefore, as further defined in Annex II of the OECD guidelines, Radisys' supply chain is not committed to supporting "3TG" minerals mined from CAHRAs or wherever human violations occur.
Radisys is a downstream user of products and components and is not directly involved in any on-site audits with its suppliers. Instead, Radisys relies on information submitted by its suppliers to identify and notify customers regarding CAHRAs in the supply chain. As a result, Radisys has adopted a Responsible Minerals Sourcing Policy and are committed to sourcing materials and components from suppliers with similar values regarding human rights, integrity, and the environment.
The Radisys Code of Conduct requires all of its suppliers to adopt due diligence guidelines and follow those mentioned in Annex II of OECD guidelines for conflict-free sourcing. In addition, Radisys asks them to establish an internal management system so that all sources can be verified as conflict-free. If a manufacturer is found to be non-compliant, Radisys will ask the supplier to cease sourcing from the concerned component supplier and qualify alternate complaint component manufacturers.
The success of our commitment to ethics and compliance depends on employees and third parties being confident enough to raise ethical questions and concerns without fear of retaliation. Several options are available for reporting suspected violations of law or company policy. Employees are encouraged to initially raise issues with their direct manager. Anyone wishing to submit an anonymous report can use the compliance hotline, EthicsPoint, where permitted under local law.
The EthicsPoint compliance hotline is globally accessible, however; local laws may limit the types of matters for which the hotline is used in certain countries. Regardless of location, persons wishing to report a suspected violation of law or policy may do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Incidents can be reported anonymously through our secure website at EthicsPoint – Radisys.
