Safety Requirements


OUR SUPPLIERS ARE HELD TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF QUALITY

Many governments around the world have been implementing new laws and regulations to control the use of certain chemical substances in manufactured products. Some of these laws include:

 

  • • The Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH)
  • • Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
  • • The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants

Non-U.S. Suppliers


READ ABOUT OUR REQUIREMENTS FOR NON-U.S. SUPPLIERS

Abbott is a participant in the U.S. Customs & Border Protection supply chain security program called the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT). Participation in C-TPAT requires Abbott to ensure that its overseas suppliers have security processes and procedures in place to protect the integrity of our supply chain.

As valued business partners, all non-U.S. suppliers are required to complete the Supply Chain Security Questionnaire and sign the accompanying Memorandum of Understanding, or provide evidence of their own company’s participation in C-TPAT or an equivalent supply chain security program. Failure to complete the security questionnaire may jeopardize our ability to purchase and import materials from your company. Completed surveys and questions regarding the C-TPAT requirements should be submitted C-TPAT@abbott.com
