At KLA-Tencor Corporation, compliance with the law is a fundamental element of our operations. When you, as a business partner of KLA-Tencor, represent us in our business dealings, it is imperative that you comply with all applicable laws, including all relevant local and international anti-bribery laws. Our corporate policy is to always prohibit improper or unethical payments to anyone (including government officials and private citizens) anywhere in the world.
You must always be aware of, and operate in compliance with, the anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws in every country where you do business on our behalf. As a United States-based company, we also want to make sure that you are aware of the key elements of one particular law: The United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA. The worldwide activities of KLA-Tencor and all of our business partners are subject to the FCPA, so it is essential that you fully comply with the FCPA in all your dealings on our behalf. A copy of KLA-Tencor’s International Anti-Bribery Compliance Policy for our third-party business partners, which includes summaries of key concepts under the FCPA, is available below in several different languages.
If you have questions regarding the requirements of the FCPA or any other anti-bribery or anti-corruption law, please promptly speak to your KLA-Tencor point of contact.
