Supplier Code of Conduct:

Novanta Inc. is committed to conducting business and sourcing materials and components from responsible suppliers who meet the highest applicable legal and ethical standards.  To assist suppliers in meeting Novanta's expectations, the Supplier Code of Conduct provides basic guidelines for important areas of business conduct. 

As used in this Code, "Supplier" refers to any entity providing products, people or services to Novanta, and where applicable, the personnel of the supplier and its subcontractors and agents.  Novanta expects its suppliers to comply with these guidelines and always exercise good judgement in applying them to their conduct as a Novanta supplier.  A Novanta supplier must conduct its business operations in full compliance with the laws, rules and regulations of the countries in which they operate and all of the laws, rules and regulations applicable to their business and/or products, including but not limited to those described in this Code, and in conformity with the internationally recognized standards of business conduct described in this Code.

Conflict Minerals:

Novanta Inc. is committed to complying with all laws and regulations applicable to our business, including the Conflict Minerals laws and regulations.  Novanta is conducting the necessary due diligence to ensure that none of the 3TG minerals in its products directly or indirectly finances or benefits armed groups in the DRC or any of the adjoining countries.  Novanta expects all of its suppliers to use materials that have been sourced in a legally responsible manner and to confirm that they have not, and will not, procure Conflict Minerals from smelters and refineries that are not certfied as conflict free.  Should Novanta discover that any of its suppliers is sourcing any 3TG minerals that directly or indirectly finances or benefits armed groups in the DRC or any of the adjoining countries, Novanta will work with the supplier to end this practice and if the supplier refuses, Novanta will work diligently to identify and partner with an alternative supplier.
