Supplier Code of Conduct

Dear Suppliers,

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR SUPPLIERS OF UCHI TECHNOLOGIES BERHAD AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES (THE “UCHITEC”, “THE COMPANY” OR “THE GROUP”)

In line with the Company’s effort in upgrading the social responsibility for our Supply Chain practices, the code of conduct had been developed for all suppliers to comply.

The code of conduct defines the basic requirement of UCHITEC’s supplier of goods and services on the activities that are strictly prohibited as well as respective responsibilities towards their stakeholders and the environment.

It is the obligation of the supplier to review the code of conduct, understand it and send us your declaration of acceptance and compliance via the acknowledgement form.

Thank you.
