To ensure compliance with the high ethical standards we have set for our business, we have developed a number of policies that we expect our employees, partners, suppliers and others doing business with us to adopt or adhere to. The framework for these policies is established by our Code of Business Conduct, which is our guide to understanding how our core values are translated into consistent actions worldwide.
Our Code of Business Conduct
One of our most valuable assets is our integrity. Protecting this asset is the job of everyone at Cambium Networks. To that end, we have established a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics as our guide to understanding how our core values are translated into consistent actions worldwide. We believe that every organization should have a set of basic principles — a “code of conduct” — by which it conducts its business. Our Code provides guidelines for legal, regulatory, and ethical compliance and sets out our high standards of integrity. This Code is neither a comprehensive resource nor a substitute for sound judgment; it is a summary of standards intended to drive integrity throughout Cambium Networks.

Our Anti-Bribery Policies
All of our employees, partners and suppliers are expected to conduct themselves with honesty, fairness and high ethical standards, and to abide by all applicable anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act, and other similar anti-corruption laws around the world. Consistent with these laws around the world, we do not promise, offer, give or authorize, directly or indirectly, a bribe or anything of value to anyone, and do not allow any of our partners to promise, offer, or give such a bribe or anything of value to anyone, in order to attempt to improperly influence any act or decision to obtain or retain business, or to secure any improper advantage for us. We have established our anti-corruption and anti-bribery policies, including our entertainment and gift policies, to govern the behavior of our employees and others acting on our behalf, and to provide guidance to ensure that our conduct always remains ethical.
Our Commitment to Anti-Boycott Principles
The United States has a policy of opposing restrictive trade practices or boycotts fostered or imposed by foreign countries against other countries friendly to the U.S. The anti-boycott laws were adopted to encourage, and in specified cases, require U.S. firms to refuse to participate in foreign boycotts that the U.S. does not sanction. Cambium Networks complies with US anti-boycott laws and we do not participate in foreign boycotts that are not sanctioned by the U.S.
Our Statement on Modern Slavery
At Cambium Networks, we are committed to upholding fundamental human rights and believe that all human beings around the world should be treated with dignity, fairness, and respect. We will only engage suppliers and direct contractors who demonstrate a serious commitment to the health and safety of their workers, and who operate in compliance with human rights laws. Cambium does not use or condone the use of slave labor or human trafficking, and denounces any degrading treatment of individuals or unsafe working conditions.
Our Statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking (as set forth in the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2020, setting out the steps we have taken and are taking to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within our business and our supply chain, can be reviewed here.
Cambium Networks is subject to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), which impacts the electronics industry and many electrical products by restricting the use of and mandating maximum levels of certain hazardous materials in the manufacture of electrical and electronic products.
RoHS compliance dovetails into WEEE by reducing the amount of hazardous chemicals used in electronics manufacture. RoHS regulates the hazardous substances used in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), while WEEE regulates the disposal of this same equipment. All applicable products for the EU market must pass WEEE compliance and carry the “Wheelie Bin” mark. So manufacturers of EEE must not only follow RoHS compliance but also WEEE compliance for end-of-life.
Cambium Networks complies with the European Union Directive Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment. The WEEE Directive mandates the treatment, recovery and recycling of electric and electronic equipment, enabling consumers to return electronic equipment covered by the WEEE directive free of charge.
The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation that addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impact on both human health and the environment. it will require all companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances into the European Union in quantities of one ton or more per year to register these substances with a new European Chemicals Agency.
