Supplier Code of Conduct

Belden is committed to ethical, legal and socially responsible business practices in its operations across the globe.  To ensure that our suppliers are meeting our expectations with respect to responsible, ethical and legal business practices, Belden established its Supplier Code of Conduct. 

Notwithstanding discrepancies among the Supplier Code of Conduct and local law or custom, our suppliers are required to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct and provide written assurance of such compliance.  Belden may audit a supplier’s compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct at Belden’s discretion.  If Belden is not satisfied with a supplier’s responses to audit requests or access provided to Belden to confirm compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct, Belden reserves the right to decline making any further purchases from such supplier.  If a supplier is determined to have violated the Supplier Code of Conduct, Belden expressly reserves the right to take any action it deems appropriate, including, but not limited to, termination of the relationship with the violating supplier.

Anyone who is aware of any Belden supplier or partner that is in violation of the Belden Supplier Code of Conduct is encouraged to report such violation on a confidential basis through the Belden Compliance Team (consisting of the Belden Legal and Internal Audit departments) at 1-800-461-9330, or online at belden.com/ethics.  Reports may be made anonymously.
