VIKING's suppliers of critical and non-critical materials are evaluated before being selected and throughout the contract period

At VIKING we are accutely aware of the importance of raw materials and components in our finished products. We continually assess and report on the products that we use and the companies that supply them.

When we are looking at a new supplier, we evaluate them according to whether they are supply critical or non-critical materials and the way in which we assess them varies slightly. Some factors, however, are common to both types of supplier.

How we assess suppliers
A reliability form that states that they may not make any changes or alterations without the prior notice and acceptance of VIKING LIFE-SAVING EQUIPMENT.

VIKING's code of conduct, which is a set of ethical rules.

We require that all suppliers can follow our Code of Conduct, based on the UN Global Compact 10 principles.

"Requirement for cooperation". Requirements include having product liability insurance, abiding by our confidentiality code, and accepting audits by VIKING.

Evaluation form, from which VIKING assesses their acceptance or non-acceptance.

When a supplier is accepted, the evaluation form is used as part of the process for renegotiating contracts.

Supplier performance is continually measured for timely delivery, any product failure, price, etc. Suppliers may be audited and subject to continual checks. Large suppliers may be audited by VIKING at short notice.

Suppliers agree terms either according to a detailed framework agreement or, in the case of suppliers of non-essential products, to VIKING's general purchasing terms.
