Responsible Business Alliance RBA Code of Conduct Audit


The Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) is the world’s largest corporate social responsibility coalition in global industry supply chains. Almost all electronics companies source components from multiple suppliers across the world, and it can be challenging to ensure that all those suppliers follow best practice when it comes to the principles of corporate social responsibility.


  • Ensures the highest health & safety standards and fair conditions for workers
  • Protects your brand
  • Instils trust in consumers and business customers
  • Mitigates the risk of expensive civil litigation or industrial action if found to be violating standards
  • Ensures business operations are environmentally responsible


TÜV SÜD Malaysia and global has extensive knowledge and experience of the auditing process for the electronics industry supply chain. The RBA Code of Conduct auditing process lasts 1-6 days depending on the size of the facility being assessed. Our auditors are also trained to spot hard-to-find violations such as instances of forced labour. TÜV SÜD Malaysia is also able to provide actionable plans to improve the conditions for workers on sites.

We offer three types of RBA-approved auditing services;

Validated Assessment Program (VAP) audit

An RBA-approved, independent third-party audit firm provides an onsite audit of a supplier, potential supplier, and/or a company’s own facility. The end-to-end process and the audit firm are independently managed by the RBA Audit Quality Manager (AQM) to ensure process integrity and adherence to the RBA VAP Quality Management Guidelines. The Auditee is required to provide necessary Corrective Action Plans following the release of the Validated Assessment Report (VAR) and undergo a closure assessment as needed.

Customer Managed Audit (CMA) (non-VAP audit)

An assessment of a facility overseen by one of the facility's customers

Auditee Managed Audit (AMA) (non-VAP audit)

An audit overseen by the auditee
