Dolphin Interconnect Solutions Policies

Dolphin - The fast and friendly company

We want to be recognized as the fast and friendly company. We deliver high quality, high performance products and quick and friendly customer support. From the beginning, we have recognized that our customers are critical to our continued success.

Each of us is personally responsible for supporting our core values, which require compliance with the law as well as high ethical conduct.

Environmental

Dolphins care about their environment and we want to operate as carefully as possible to reduce all kinds of waste and pollution in all our operations. We are trying to reduce the amount of printed material we ship to our customers; everything can be downloaded from the www.dolphinics.com website.

All new products are designed to minimize the environmental impact over its lifetime and disposal.

Policy to avoid counterfeit components

Counterfeit components is a growing concern. It is essential for our performance and reputation that Dolphins high quality products are manufactured using only the highest quality parts from original or authorized suppliers. Dolphin is committed to our customers to avoid using counterfeit parts, and all our suppliers and manufacturers are required to have an approved quality program to prevent counterfeit components entering the supply chain.

Policy on sustainable materials sourcing

Dolphin is committed to sustainable sourcing through environmental and social justice. Through this commitment, our company has adopted the principles of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct. We are fully committed to ensuring that the “conflict minerals” in our products do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or any adjoining country. This policy applies to all suppliers and subcontractors.

As part of this commitment, Dolphin will exercise due diligence on all its suppliers in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk areas. In particular, we have required our contract manufacturer to implement a monitoring and reporting system for environmental impact and conflict minerals in our products. Dolphin does not source any minerals directly as part of our products, but does source electronics components from wide range of companies. We therefore have a commitment to drive accountability and ensure appropriate due diligence within our suppliers.

Under this policy, Dolphin requires all its suppliers to:

  1. Conduct their business in conformance with the EICC Code of Conduct requirements.
  2. Exclusively source from smelters or refineries that have been independently audited and approved as “conflict-free” by the Conflict-Free Smelter Program.
  3. Exercise due diligence on their supply chains in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and the EICC Code of Conduct.
  4. Comply with Section 1502 of the Dodd/Frank Wall Street Recovery Act.
