Re: Sustainability audit per EICC Supplier Code of Conduct

Hi

I assume that you are interested in knowing as to how the audit will take place NOW. My experience is from the PAST. If my assumption is wrong please correct me.

I have retired from Philips two years ago and I do not know if there is any change in the way EICC assessments are carried out. But knowing the organization which is very serious on this assessment, I would expect the audit to focus on all the elements of EICC pertaining to Labour, health and safety, environment, management systems and ethics; if you are going to be audited by a third party - prepare for issues related to minimum wage, salary slip, working hours (especially for drivers and security staff), Overtime work, weekly offs, age, discrimination in wages, training in safety, health check up (especially for drivers, canteen employees, security staff), PF deposits, ESI, training in emergency (in the work place), provision and use of PPE, exposure to management systems (& depending on your company's size your own management system), licences, code of conduct etc. The list is not exhaustive...but indicative.

I would be glad to answer if you have any specific question.

With kind regards,

Ramakrishnan

Re: Sustainability audit per EICC Supplier Code of Conduct

The updated EICC Code of Conduct, version 5.0, was ratified by EICC full members in 2014 and goes into effect on April 1, 2015....
Get the version 5.0 HERE
Code of Conduct

The EICC Code of Conduct is a set of standards on social, environmental and ethical issues in the electronics industry supply chain. The standards set out in the Code of Conduct reference international norms and standards including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO and SA standards, and many more. The current EICC Code of Conduct, version 4.0, is in effect until March 31, 2015. An updated, 5.0, version was ratified in 2014 and goes into effect on April 1, 2015.

Re: Sustainability audit per EICC Supplier Code of Conduct

Sustainability has been driven down the supply chain by the Big names with the EICC being the accepted code. This was so far implemented in the supply chain by training and promotion with third party audit as the measure for compliance and improvement. We are now seeing a shift with the big corporations, in that they are now taking the approach of third party consultation and participation with the supply chain based on exhaustive checklists , rather than an audit. So what was till now an audit once in three years or so, is turning to be an ongoing annual affair, with more time involved and payout on the supply chain account to the third party.
Not sure how this will improve the performance, but we are already faced with this getting into 2018.
This process is being started by our principles with a new third party called "Elevatelimited.com"
Any body have more idea or experience on this new emerging style of implementation ?
Thanks for sharing your views and learning ......

Re: Sustainability audit per EICC Supplier Code of Conduct

Warm greetings and best wishes for a great year 2018 ahead to all the members of this forum.

Dear Somasekar,

I agree with your concern that the check-list audit by a third party every year may not be a good and effective method for business risk reduction.

Generally a "potential risk analysis" is carried out among the suppliers by the customer organization and only those who are likely to pose risks are audited/assessed. The frequency of audit/assessment depends on the customer perceived risk. In some cases countries are grouped as "high risk" countries and all the suppliers in these countries (e.g. India, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand etc.), irrespective of the performance of the supplier, are assessed as per the set frequencies. It is better to speak to your customer and convince the customer to see reason for reduced frequency for assessments.

All the best
L. Ramakrishnan
Thanks to Dr. L. Ramakrishnan for your informative Post and/or Attachment!
