Costco's policy expressly prohibits the acceptance by any Costco employee of any gratuity from a vendor with whom we are currently doing business or whom we are considering for future business.
Costco Wholesale Corporation is committed to protecting the working rights and safety of the people who produce the products we sell, while recognising and respecting the cultural and legal differences found throughout the world.
Please note the following key aspects of our Code of Conduct:
RESTRICTIVE LABOUR CONDITIONS- prohibits slave labour, human trafficking, illegal child labour, illegal prison labour and physical abuse of employees;
WORK ENVIRONMENT- expects our suppliers to comply, at a minimum, with the applicable labour and environmental laws and regulations of the country where the merchandise is produced; and
FUTURE IMPROVEMENT- encourages our suppliers to work to achieve above and beyond the minimums set by local laws and regulations.
We expect our Suppliers to comply with our Code of Conduct, as compliance is one of the requirements of our Vendor Agreement. We reserve the right to conduct and will conduct audits of all applicable production facilities in order to monitor compliance with our Code. It is important to know that we may discontinue business with any Supplier who fails to comply, after reasonable notice of non-compliance.
We have implemented a global confidential ethics hotline as part of our continuing efforts to assure compliance with our Code of Ethics, our Vendor Code of Conduct, and other legal and ethical policies. http://www.costco.ethicspoint.com
This is a confidential tool available for use by any supplier who has reason to believe a Costco employee or supplier is in violation of these policies. (Transactional issues, such as deliveries, payments or other related items should not be addressed through this channel.)
We encourage supplier reports of possible violations of policy and other misconduct, including violations of:

Contacts can be made confidentially. Reports will go to the Office of the General Counsel and the Chief Compliance Officer, who will investigate and discuss with the appropriate senior executive officer.
We expect all vendors to consistently and voluntarily quote the lowest possible acquisition price available on all items. A vendor who does not consistently and voluntarily quote its lowest prices to our buyers will be permanently discontinued as a purchasing source for Costco.
