As a world-class science facility, Diamond adheres to the strictest behaviours and standards and expects the same of its suppliers. We seek to work with suppliers that ensure a fair and ethical workplace, where workers are treated with dignity and respect and the highest standards of human rights are upheld.
This Supplier Code of Conduct (“Code”) applies to all suppliers and their subsidiaries and subcontractors that provide goods or services to Diamond. Suppliers contracting with Diamond are expected to promote the principles of this Code in their own supplychains.
While Diamond recognises that there are different legal and cultural environments in which suppliers operate, this Code outlines the basic ethical requirements that suppliers should adhere to in order to do business with Diamond. By contracting with Diamond the supplier is confirming that it complies with the provisions outlined in this Code.
Suppliers acknowledge that compliance with this Code is a prerequisite to every Diamond contract for the supply of goods and services and they understand that their operations are subject to the principles contained in this Code. Suppliers must be able to demonstrate adherence to the Code at the request of Diamond, who reserves the right to audit the supplier based on the principles of this Code.
Suppliers are expected to be transparent in their practices and actively promote adherence to Diamond’s policies and processes. Diamond regularly monitors suppliers through a supplier governance framework, including the use of questionnaires and audits, to identify and assess potential ethical risks.

Diamond reserves the right to refuse to work with suppliers that do not achieve or are unable to demonstrate progress towards this Code and that adopt approaches which are inconsistent with Diamond’s own principles.
