A fundamental component of Quantum’s ability to succeed comes from our continuous drive to support the highest benchmarks for ethical conduct, including by sharing and explaining the standards we set for ourselves. Some of Quantum’s internal expectations and performance standards are provided here for your reference.
The foundation for Quantum’s ethics and compliance program is provided by The High Road – Quantum's Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which we encourage you to review so you understand how we conduct business in today’s world. You may also be interested in reviewing our Anticorruption Policy, which explains our efforts to prevent bribery in our business transactions.

We are committed to upholding human rights for everyone, including our team members and those of our business partners, by only supporting employment arrangements that adhere to applicable child and voluntary labor laws and minimum wage standards.
As a matter of practice, we follow the Electronics Industry Code of Conduct and require the same commitment from applicable suppliers via contractual requirements. We are confident in those suppliers’ ability to be compliant with these requirements due to the manner in which we select and manage our key business partners. Quantum engages with only reputable component suppliers and contract manufacturers, whose suitability as our partner is evaluated prior to selection through appropriate quality and business process audits, business model reviews, and sustainability assessments. Adherence to Quantum’s Supplier Code of Conduct Requirements is validated via internal employee education regarding supply chain risks, regular visits to key supplier facilities and our ongoing business review process. Given the frequency of our visits to key supplier locations and the clear communication of our expectations, we do not currently utilize third parties to conduct independent, unannounced audits of supplier compliance with Quantum’s code of conduct requirements. Any Quantum team members or business partners found to be in violation of Quantum’s code of conduct requirements may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of the employment or business relationship.
