Code of Conduct
5A is an independent distributor/agent of electronic components serving the Nordic industry. We represent more than 30 leading manufacturers, with production facilities worldwide. Lead by our tradition and creed, as an innovative company, we feel responsible to ensure that our products and services, including our supply chain, follow our own claims, ethical principles and are consistent with international standards.
The Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC) defines such standards for all stakeholders throughout the electronics supply chain to improve social, economic, and environmental conditions. 5A fully complies in our approach to the EICC Code of Conduct and, in addition, 5A demands every supplier in the supply chain, which provide products or services, to fulfil their social responsibility and apply the EICC Code of Conduct. In the case that other laws or regulations provide more stringent regulations, they have precedence over this Code of Conduct.

Free choice of employment
Child Labour Avoidance
Maximum work week of 60 hours, except in emergency or unusual situations; at least one day per week off
