Sustainability Report 2021 74 Sustainability Report 2021 74 Applied Materials develops and implements comprehensive product design, manufacturing, labeling, and testing policies and programs to ensure our products are safe to use and comply with applicable legal requirements and industry standards and guidelines. Third-party assessments validate that our products meet applicable safety requirements. We follow all relevant country- and region- specific requirements. For example, products distributed in China are marked with a mandatory “China RoHS 25” label to comply with the administrative measure on the control of pollution from electronic information products. Products sold in the European Union comply with regional manufacturing and labeling requirements, including the CE mark affirming conformity with European health, safety, and environmental standards. Products sold in the UK bear the similar UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark. Relevant products sold in South Korea are tested to ensure compliance with KC mark requirements (related to electromagnetic compatibility and electrical safety requirements). Any business unit or group that develops, sells, or distributes products is required to design and engineer those products to protect both the user’s personnel and facilities and the environment from exposure to risks, and that any residual risks remain below a minimum acceptable level when the products are operated, maintained, and serviced in accordance with the instructions and information provided to the user. Our Product Safety group partners with other company functions to oversee the design of products and services, monitors their safety during the product’s lifecycle, and drives compliance with our product safety policy and procedures. Our risk-assessment process follows the applicable SEMI S10 industry risk assessment guideline. In 2021, we enhanced our risk assessment procedure to consider additional risks and address these risks during the product design and manufacturing process.
