In compliance with the Act, this statement is provided on behalf of Michelman, Inc.

Verification. Michelman purchases products, components and raw materials from suppliers located in the United States and in foreign countries. Michelman generally verifies its supply chains by doing business with suppliers that are well-established, reputable organizations that respect the legal requirements of the jurisdictions in which they operate.

Audits. Michelman expects all of its suppliers to comply at all times with all applicable laws and to engage in honest and ethical business conduct. Michelman would take prompt action if it found evidence that a supplier was engaging in any illegal activity, including slavery or human trafficking. Except as discussed above regarding verification, however, Michelman does not conduct audits of its suppliers to evaluate compliance with Michelman’s standards regarding slavery and trafficking in supply chains.

Accountability. Michelman follows, and requires all employees to follow, policies that demand lawful, honest, and ethical conduct in every aspect of business dealings, including a Code of Business Conduct that includes the requirement to comply with all laws and regulations of the United States and the other countries in which Michelman does business. Violation of these policies may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, or other legal action as appropriate.
