Zebra Standards of Business Partner Conduct
We support the following organizations with funding for their work:
Zebra takes pride in the safety and quality of our products. Complying with regulations and standards are a top priority at Zebra.
In order to do so, Zebra partners with independent 3rd parties to ensure that we meet or exceed standards set forth by these reputable organizations.
Zebra participates and is a member of the WERCSmart® platform.
“The WERCSmart® retail supply chain compliance program is an industry-leading risk mitigation platform developed specifically to give retailers with complex supply chains quick and easy access to accurate regulatory compliance and safety data.
WERCSmart® provides retailers with critical data to ensure the correct handling, transportation, storage and disposal of chemical-containing products. The growing challenges associated with reverse logistics, municipality-based product restrictions and state-specific hazardous waste regulations are streamlined by the WERCSmart® solution.”
Zebra is a member of the renowned organization ACMI (ART & CREATIVE MATERIALS INSTITUTE). ACMI puts products through rigorous testing in order to ensure that Zebra meets their high standards of product safety.
Look for this seal on many Zebra products.
“The AP (Approved Product) Seal identifies art materials that are safe and that are certified in a toxicological evaluation by a medical expert to contain no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans, including children, or to cause acute or chronic health problems. Such products are certified by ACMI to be labeled in accordance with the chronic hazard labeling standard, ASTM D 4236, and the U. S. Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA).”
Zebra joined the CTPAT (Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) initiative in order to ensure safety throughout its supply chains.
“When an entity joins CTPAT, an agreement is made to work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices. Applicants must address a broad range of security topics and present security profiles that list action plans to align security throughout the supply chain.”
Occasionally our customers will ask to perform their own audit of our facilities and our vendors. We work closely with our customers in order to provide the cooperation needed in order to carry out these requests.
As a leading manufacturer of quality products, great care is put into the type of ingredients and formulations we use. Like you, we are also concerned about animal testing. Every effort is made to avoid such practices. While we do our best, we cannot guarantee that some of the third-party, indirect suppliers are as sensitive to this issue as we are. We do however strongly encourage our direct suppliers to work with their partners to avoid these practices.
