Our commitment to quality is at the core of our corporate culture. It has made Exxelia a leading supplier of value-added solutions for advanced applications such as defense, space and civil aviation. This commitment is reflected in a demanding quality policy based on rigorous and harmonized procedures at all levels of our organization.
As a driving force for continuous improvement, our quality policy is aimed at strengthening our operational and industrial performances while improving human safety. All our sites are ISO 9001 certified and those specialized in the aeronautics sector have the EN 9100 standard. We are thus able to ensure our customers that we have full control of all our processes, as well as their quality and time limit requirements. In addition, our manufacturing sites are regularly audited by our customers. This commitment to quality enables us to share common references wih our customers in terms of manufacturing processes, industrial standards and to incorporate them into our own operating procedures.
Differentiation by quality is also a strategic stake for Exxelia. Operating in critical markets, Exxelia is known for its expertise and the quality of its production. The company develops and supplies ever more efficient products to ensure the reliability and security of the systems in which they are implemented. Thanks to long-lasting partnerships with manufacturers, OEM and institutions, Exxelia is recognized as a key and reliable supplier.
Exxelia is committed to respect the highest standards of ethics and integrity in its professional activities and in all the group entities. Sharing ethical rules ensures cohesion and contributes to a good development of our activities in a responsible framework. This principle applies to all Exxelia employees worldwide and also to our customers, service providers and suppliers.
Conflict Minerals Compliance: Exxelia ensures that its activities are in compliance with the "Conflict Minerals Compliance" US law developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to prevent the use of minerals from conflict zones as defined in the Act. The minerals concerned are: Cassitric (tin), Coltan (tantalum), Wolframite (tungsten) and Gold. The Act requires full traceability and a mechanism to control the supply chain of minerals to encourage importers to buy exclusively "certified" minerals.

Exxelia is committed to apply a robust environmental policy, from product design through production to shipment. To control its environmental footprint and reconcile this with the company’ functional imperatives, Exxelia environmental policy provides for the reduction or elimination of hazardous substances.
We also focus on compliance with European Union directives and regulations, notably REACH and RoHS:
• the main goals of REACH (Registration Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), a European regulation, are to ensure the protection of human health and the environment against risks liable to be created by the presence of chemicals;
• RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)is a European directive applied since July 1 2006. Its purpose is to eliminate lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and flame retarders from specific electrical and electronic equipment marketed in Europe.
Exxelia is consequently responsible for assessing and managing these risks and supplying appropriate safety information to both its own workforce and its customers. Exxelia constantly monitors the evolution of these standards, regulations and directives, and applies them every day to its manufacturing processes.
