Diagnostics 360 Supplier Code of Conduct

Supplier codes of conduct are established to ensure that a company’s suppliers uphold safe working conditions, treat their workers with respect and dignity, and practice environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Diagnostics 360’s supplier code of conduct was developed in accordance with B Corp and UKAS standards.

At Diagnostics 360, we are committed to ensuring our suppliers operate responsibly and ethically. This Supplier Code of Conduct outlines the standards and expectations we have for all suppliers we work with.
