The purpose of this Supplier Code of Conduct for Service Providers and Non-Critical Suppliers (“SCoC-SP”) is to outline the minimum ethical standards and expectations Mycronic AB and its group companies (”Mycronic”) require its Suppliers (as defined below) to comply with when doing business with Mycronic in terms of protection of human rights, promoting fair employment conditions, ensuring safe working conditions, ensuring ethical business practices and responsible management of environmental issues. This SCoC-SP is based on the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.

In addition to the Suppliers compliance with all relevant laws, regulations and standards in the countries in which the Supplier operates, this SCoC-SP applies also when it stipulates a higher standard than required by national laws and regulations. This SCoC-SP forms an integral part of all contracts between the Supplier and Mycronic. Mycronic reserves the right to terminate business relationships with Suppliers who fail to comply with these standards.

6. Responsible business

Mycronic has a zero-tolerance policy for any form of corruption and financial irregularity, for example bribery, facilitation payments, fraud, money laundering, extortion or embezzlement and requires adequate procedures in place to prevent bribery in all commercial dealings 
undertaken by the Supplier. The Supplier is required to conduct its business in full compliance with Mycronic’s Supplier Code of Conduct for Service Providers and Non-Critical Suppliers, or the Suppliers’ own equivalent ethical rules, whichever are stricter. 

This means, among other things, that the Supplier is required and undertakes: 

  • To conduct business in full compliance with all applicable antitrust and fair competition laws.

  • To prevent situations where there is a conflict of interest between the Supplier and Mycronic. Any conflict of interest in any business dealings with Mycronic, of which the Supplier is aware, shall be declared to Mycronic to allow Mycronic the opportunity to take appropriate action.
  • To act in compliance with applicable procurement laws, regulations and particular procurement contracts when entering into business relations with governmental agencies and their officials.

When obtaining and processing personal data, the Supplier must comply with all applicable laws and regulations on the processing of 
personal data and ensure an adequate level of data protection for both employees and customers.

The Supplier is required: 

  • To not use public computers with/or public networks in connection with assignments from Mycronic.

If in doubt about the security level of your devices, please contact Mycronic prior to any data 


9. General Requirements

The Supplier is required to immediately report any non-compliance with this SCoC-SP to Mycronic.

Reports can be submitted confidentially and anonymously (where permitted by law) via Mycronic’s whistleblowing system. For more information or to raise a concern, please see Mycronic Whistleblowing Policy or visit https://report.whistleb.com/mycronic.



10. Enforcement

If Mycronic finds that the Supplier is not meeting the requirements and expectations set out in this SCoC-SP, Mycronic will offer guidance specifying which issues need to be corrected or improved. The Supplier must then take corrective actions promptly as advised by Mycronic. 

A breach that is not possible to rectify or, if possible to rectify, is not rectified within thirty (30) days from notification will be considered a material breach of the main contract between Mycronic and the Supplier. 

If Mycronic has the right to terminate the Agreement, such termination will also apply to all outstanding orders unless otherwise notified by Mycronic. This notwithstanding, a breach which causes Mycronic significant economic or reputational loss and which Mycronic cannot reasonably be expected to tolerate will always constitute a material breach without a right for the Supplier to rectify such breach.
