Supplier Management

At Episil, we value our partnerships with suppliers as links in a reliable semiconductor supply chain. We assist suppliers to conduct risk assessments, improve management and ensure chemicals comply with current laws and regulations. A rigorous contractor supervision and management process effectively monitors compliance with environmental, safety, and health (ESH) regulations; personnel safety is thereby ensured and property loss prevented. We are also cognizant of labor and human rights issues. For example, we request that suppliers eschew conflict zone minerals.

Since 2011 Episil have requested their suppliers and suppliers’ supply chain to disclose their cooperated smelting plant and mine list; we also encourage our suppliers and their supply chain to purchase from non-conflict smelting plant and mine. In addition, we request our supplier to urge those smelting plant and mine which not yet obtain non-conflict authentication to accept conflict-free smelter Program (CFSP) or other equivalent 3rd party’s audit and authentication.

Episil will continuously devote ourselves to achieve in the use of Gold, Tantalum, Tin, and Wolfram on the line with the “conflict-free” principal as the goal, and regularly update annual survey of suppliers, asking them to improve and expand the scope of the information disclosure to comply with regulation and customer requirements.

The so-called "conflict-free" raw material is material come from Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), Global e-Sustainability Initiate (GeSI), other equivalent organization approved Smelting plant, or been identified as “DFC conflict free” after reasonable verification and due diligence.
