(Cypress Semiconductor, Austin, TX)
The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) was founded in 2004 by eight electronics companies seeking to create industry-wide standards on social, environmental, ethical and labor issues within the electronics industry supply chain. The result was the EICC Code of Conduct (the Code). Current semiconductor and semiconductor supplier members include: AMAT, AMD, Fairchild, Intel, KLA-Tencor, Micron, NXP, On, Samsung, TI, TSMC and TEL. This roundtable will begin with a presentation on the topics covered under the Code and how companies are assessed for conformance, through the use of EICC-ON Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs) and third party audits. Attendees will be encouraged to share their own experiences with the membership process, using EICC-ON, both as a customer and a supplier, audits, and challenges and solutions for complying with the Code.
