Corporate Ethics and Standards
Multitest corporate governance is committed to the highest ethical standards and to conducting business with the highest level of integrity.
The SEMI International Standards Program is one of the key services offered by Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) for the benefit of the worldwide semiconductor, photovoltaic (PV) and flat panel display (FDP) industries. SEMI standards are written documents in the form of specifications, guides, test methods, terminology, practices, etc.
Multitest product development considers relevant key SEMI standards.
SEMI released the CAST terminology guide for Test Cell Docking and Mounting. The document is a reference for equipment operators, specifiers, service personnel and other industry stakeholders involved with test cell equipment features, specifications and operations. The guide is the result of the Docking and Mounting Working Group of CAST, which was chaired by Multitest.
ISO 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a quality management system. The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.
ISO 14001:2015 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.
Eco-Management and Audit Scheme
EMAS is a voluntary instrument of the European Union which supports companies and organisations independent of their size and industry sector to continuously improve their environmental performance.
EMAS is worldwide the most challenging system for environmental management.
EMAS partners continuously improve their environmental performance supported by a standardised management system. They communicate their defined environmental goals and the status of execution with an environmental statement each year. This environmental statement is published and gets validated by a governmental licensed, independent assessor.
China RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
Officially known as Administrative Measure on the Control of Pollution Cause by Electronic Information Products, China RoHS is a Chinese government regulation to control certain materials, including lead.
There are currently six (6) substances considered environmentally hazardous by the China ROHS directive.
- Hexavalent Chromium
- Polybrominated Biphenyls
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers
All items shipped to China now have to be marked as to whether the items contained in the box are compliant or non-compliant. The Electronic Information Products (EIP) logo is used to mark parts and assemblies that do not contain unacceptable amounts of substances identified by the regulations, and that are environmentally safe.
Units that do contain hazardous substances are marked with the EIP logo including an Environment Friendly Use Period (EFUP) value in years.
