E. Labor Practices/Code of Conduct

1. The University of Utah is committed to the concept that all merchandise bearing reference to the University (including names of each department and any recognized club and organization affiliated with the University) will be manufactured by companies whose labor policies insure that their employees are safe from abusive labor conditions.

2. The University of Utah is an active member of the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and supports their strict Labor Code Standards that require manufacturers of licensed products (Licensees) to certify their compliance with the Code. In addition to certifying their compliance with the Code, Licensees are required to disclose the location, address, phone number, email, and contact person for each facility it owns or contracts with for the production of goods, and they must authorize the FLA to make announced or unannounced inspections of their manufacturing facilities.

3. In order to insure the broadest interpretation of this policy, the University requires that any product produced for the University (or for departments or recognized clubs and organizations) which carries a University Trademark, or uses the name of, or refers to, a University department or a recognized club or organization, be manufactured by those companies that are appropriately licensed to use University Trademarks (Licensees), and are in compliance with the University's Labor Code Standards. For a current list of Officially Licensed Vendors, contact the Trademark and Licensing Office in Auxiliary Services.
