This Supplier Code of Conduct follows that the Resideo Human Trafficking Policy requirements and sets the expectation that suppliers shall not engage in any form of human trafficking or forced labor.
Meeting the requirements set forth in our Supplier Code of Conduct is standard in all our procurement contracts. Any breach by the supplier allows Resideo to terminate the contract.
Resideo has a program in place to conduct audits of its supply chain to ensure compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct, including our policies regarding slavery and human trafficking. We reserve the right to terminate a supplier relationship if that supplier does not comply with legal or Resideo requirements.
Resideo also requires its employees to follow the Resideo Code of Business Conduct and Human Trafficking Policy.
