CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT DISCLOSURE
This disclosure is made in accordance with the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (“TCSA” or “SB 567”) that Aiva Products has disclosed what we require of our suppliers in our efforts to eliminate forced labor and human trafficking in the procurement and supply chain. Among other things, our direct suppliers acknowledge and agree to abide by our standards set forth in the Supplier Code of Conduct and contractually agree to give us access to information that would allow us to verify that they are not engaged in trafficking and to extend the Code to all of their extended sources of supply.
Our selection and continued use of our suppliers are based on the following “Supplier Code of Conduct” with respect to all goods and products that company purchases:
- Comply with all applicable laws and regulations of United States of America and respective country of sourcing.
- Agree not to engage in any form of human trafficking or slavery.
- Protect against the use of workers younger than the minimum age required by law.
- Suppliers will treat all employees with respect and will not use corporal punishment, threats of violence or other forms of physical coercion or harassment.
- Provide appropriate wages and benefits as required by law.
- Aiva Products employees receive training on our Business Practices Guidelines, which requires employee compliance with law and Company policy, on a periodic basis.
- Protect against excessive working hours that exceed local laws or business customs.

- Aiva Products in its discretion, expressly reserves the right to verify a supplier’s compliance with the Supplier Code through audits or on-site inspections to evaluate supplier’s compliance with our standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains and other Aiva Product’s standards. Such audits or inspections can be carried out by Aiva Products or by a third party at our request.
A supplier’s failure to comply with our Supplier Code may impact the supplier’s ability to continue to do business with us, depending on the nature and severity of the non-compliance. Any instance of substantial or serious non-compliance with the Supplier Code will be grounds for immediate termination from the supply chain.
Aiva Products maintains an internal scoring system with respect to its periodic audits of suppliers and records. Aiva Products further investigates all reported instances of non-compliance and takes appropriate action to help ensure that company’s Supplier Code of Conduct and applicable laws are observed.
