As a minimum, we observe all applicable laws and regulations and where necessary will also introduce standards in accordance with this Code, where laws and regulations do not align with the Code’s objectives. We expect that in their operations suppliers maintain knowledge of and as a minimum requirement observes national legislation in the countries where they conduct their business.
