For Suppliers

19.8.2014 Acceptance of the new Code of Conduct

As we told you on our website on 30 June 2014, Alko will implement the new BSCI Code of Conduct this August. We also told you that all our suppliers must accept the new operating principles by either signing the acceptance document or by giving the approval on Alko’s partner network.

Contrary to the earlier practice, the signed documents or the electric approvals do not need to be product-specific. Supplier-specific approvals are sufficient. By signing or giving an electric acceptance the supplier undertakes to observe the Code of Conduct in its entity, although the acceptance is given on the “Terms of Implementation for Business Partners” document.  

Please fill in and sign the acceptance document and send it to our address Alko Inc., Box 33, 00180, Helsinki, Finland.  
If you are user of our Partner Network Offer Software, you can also fill in the acceptance form “New Code of Conduct” there.

The deadline for signing the document or giving the electric approval is 31 December 2014.

If the seller does not sign the acceptance form or give an electric approval, Alko may cancel its orders or delist the products without any liability to compensate.

Concerning new products, the acceptance of the new Code of Conduct is included in the offer form.
