Boeing coordinates across our global supply chain to respect human rights and ensure compliance with conflict minerals laws and regulations. We have established a conflict minerals compliance program that protects human rights and is designed to follow the framework established by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
Regulations and Policy
Resources and Awareness
Boeing works with industry associations to provide resources and training to ensure effective industry solutions that are in compliance with Conflict Minerals laws and regulations.
Effective cybersecurity is essential to running a healthy business and protecting sensitive information. In order to protect both commerciall sensitive and defense-related information, Boeing has adopted security principles in accordance with ISO 27001 and expects similar efforts from suppliers to adequately protect the supply chain. Boeing does not require suppliers to be certified under any specific framework; however, the expectation is that all suppliers will adopt security practices in accordance with an industry-leading security framework such as ISO 27001 or National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework.
- Suppliers must ensure goods delivered to Boeing (including electronic systems and software) satisfy the relevant civil aviation regulations for safety, airworthiness and quality, including but not limited to:
Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified cybersecurity standard for future Department of Defense acquisitions. CMMC addresses Controlled Unclassified Information and will supplement the NIST 800-171 controls set forth in DFARS 252.204-7012. CMMC contains five levels, ranging from Basic Cyber Hygiene, (Level 1) to Advanced/Progressive, (Level 5).
Defense Industrial Base Sector Coordinating Council SCC Cyber Assist
The Defense Industrial Base (DIB) Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) Cyber Assist website provides trusted resources to assist DIB companies and suppliers of varying sizes with implementation of cyber protections and awareness of cyber risk, regulations and accountability for their supply chain. The website has a specific CMMC section that provides suppliers with resources to navigate CMMC awareness and implementation.
Trade Controls Compliance
Boeing is the United States’ largest exporter, necessitating a robust export compliance program that includes annual registration with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). We rely on our global supply chain to be equally diligent in its compliance with trade control regulations.
Boeing’s commitment to the development of environmentally-preferred materials is part of a comprehensive approach towards compliance with the European Union REACH chemical regulation.
Combating Trafficking in Persons
Boeing believes that the employment relationship should be voluntary, and the terms of employment must comply with applicable laws and regulations. Boeing is committed to working to mitigate the risk of human trafficking and forced labor in all aspects of its business and throughout our supply chain.
