IMPLEMENTATION AND COMPLIANCE
These guidelines highlight T.P.S.’s expectations (and in some cases requirements) of the manner in which its suppliers will conduct themselves in their business relationships with T.P.S.
T.P.S. recognises that achieving the standards established in these guidelines will be a dynamic rather than a static process and encourages suppliers to continually improve their workplace conditions.
T.P.S. expects that suppliers will work with their own suppliers and subcontractors to ensure that they also meet the principles of these guidelines or an equivalent set of principles.
T.P.S. conducts an audit that includes physical inspection, and where possible, background check/s, to ascertain if a new supplier meets the guidelines within this Supplier Code of Conduct, before commencing business with each supplier. A supplier may be given time to comply with these guidelines if they are found to be at least 75% compliant and that it is foreseeable they have the ability to be fully compliant within a short period of time.
T.P.S. conducts continual monitoring of all suppliers to ensure they maintain compliance of the Supplier Code of Conduct.
T.P.S. may visit a supplier’s facility, with or without notice, to assess compliance with this Code.
It is entirely within T.P.S.’s discretion whether to continue to use a supplier.
All suppliers are aware that the failure to consistently meet these standards will impact the future ability to do business with T.P.S., and may at its discretion, decide to cease all business activities as well as reserve the right to take such actions as it deems appropriate.
