Supply Chain EHS Policies, Specifications & Permits

Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy

Intel’s Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy documents our recognition of the issue associated with conflict minerals and communicates our expectations for our suppliers in establishing a DRC conflict free supply chain. The supplier expectations identified in the policy apply to all Intel suppliers who use any of the metals (tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold) in their products or materials they supply to Intel. Intel suppliers should have a conflict minerals sourcing policy as well as exercise due diligence on their supply chains to support establishing DRC conflict free materials supplied to Intel. Intel’s Conflict Minerals Sourcing Policy is available as a template for our suppliers. Our Conflict Minerals White paper describes what Intel is doing to address the issue and can be found at Intel’s Conflict Minerals Program website.

Environmental Product Content Specification

This specification includes Intel’s expectations for its suppliers as related to conflict minerals. It identifies substances that should not be contained in or are required to be reported for materials, parts, components, or products supplied to Intel.

Questions or comments regarding Conflict Minerals should be directed to Erin Mitchell at conflict.minerals.team@intel.com

Pre-Task Planning (PTP) for Escorted Guest Workers

The purpose of pre-task planning is to aid in job planning by documenting hazards and associated controls.

All workers involved and/or affected by the work must review and understand potential risks, hazards, and impacts along with the documented protective measures.

Escorted Guest Workers shall confirm this by signing the PTP prior to starting work.

The pre-task plan must be readily available at the location where the work is being conducted and for the duration of the work tasks being performed.

If work activities and/or conditions change, the work must stop! The PTP must be reviewed and revised as appropriate to comprehend the changes. Prior to restarting work, all workers review and comprehend the revised PTP.

Escort will validate that a pre-task plan has been completed prior to entry.
