Key policies for suppliers

Suppliers of materials and services play a vital role in helping Thermo Fisher Scientific deliver quality products while employing and maintaining ethical business practices.  Working together with our suppliers, we can lower cost, improve performance, operate safely, reduce waste, protect our environment, support diversity, and promote human rights.

Responsible and integrated supply chains result in strong, mutually beneficial relationships that provide value for both our customers and for the global community.


As a supplier to a Thermo Fisher company, you and your employees, workers, representatives, suppliers and subcontractors must comply with the policies and requirements listed below and those contained in all other contractual obligations you have with us. Given the increasing level of compliance and regulatory challenges that we need to comply with, we need suppliers who can work with us to proactively assess potential issues in the supply chain.
