Human Rights in Supply Chain

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010

On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (Senate Bill 657) will go into effect in the State of California. The Act requires manufacturers and retailers to disclose information about their efforts to address the issue of slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains, thus allowing consumers to know whether manufacturers and retailers of goods they choose to support proactively engage with these issues.

ASUSTeK declares that we and our direct supply chains do not involve in the issue of slavery and human trafficking. ASUSTeK has undertaken efforts to ensure and verify the absence of forced labor and child labor in our supply chain. These efforts includes:

  • Verification & Certification:
  • ASUSTeK requires all suppliers to sign and comply with "Consent of ASUSTeK Code of Conduct" and go through a series of self surveys before the audit, and only suppliers that pass the audit will be included in our Qualified Vendors List (QVL). CSR survey is included as part of the verification since 2011. Please see Supplier Conduct Principles for more information.
  • Auditing:
  • ASUSTeK performs regular CSR audit to our direct supply chains. Please see Supplier CSR Audit Policy and Standards and Supplier CSR Audit Analysis for more information.
  • Internal Accountability: ASUSTeK formulates the CSR Audit Policy and ensures the designated auditors on supply chains fully aware and understand the importance the CSR audit.
  • Training:
  • ASUSTeK holds annual supplier workshops to educate them and promote our CSR policy.

All ASUS employees are respected and treated fairly, and ASUS requires its suppliers to comply with all relevant legal, social and environmental standards.

The United Kingdom's Modern Slavery Act 2015 requests companies to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not occurring anywhere in their organizations or supply chains, and it also requests annual public documentation in confirmation. This statement reaffirms that ASUS has established and implemented auditing and monitoring operations to prevent slavery and/or human trafficking across the Company, including its supply chain. ASUS also reaffirms its commitment to continue to work with suppliers in order to help prevent slavery and/or trafficking from occurring in their respective organizations in the future.
