Keysight strives to ensure our products comply with applicable safety and regulatory requirements around the globe. These goals stem from our respect for laws, workers, and the environment.
Fostering environmental sustainability
Environmental, Occupational Health & Safety Policy includes a commitment to ensuring that our products and operations comply with relevant environmental legislation and regulations. In addition, we utilize tools such as the General Specification for the Environment and our Design for the Environment Guidelines to help minimize the environmental impact of product packaging.
Our efforts in support of product regulatory affairs are documented online and made available to the public:

Keysight maintains both a conservative approach and an organizational bias toward documenting product specifications.
Rigid adherence to specifications begins with product design. These are just some of the processes we use to design quality into our products:
Keysight provides quick access to key support resources for ensuring your equipment adheres to product specifications over time. Resources include service notes, Keysight parts and manuals for repairs, e-mail updates, and access to our team of experts. Additionally, N7800A Calibration and Adjustment Software allows you to increase your productivity by using the same automated performance and adjustment software used in Keysight Service Centers.
Through these processes and more, we meet the highest standards to ensure our products perform as we say they will, with no surprises, from initial purchase, through the life of the equipment.
The definition of quality can be subjective, often determined by the customer's unique viewpoint. Nevertheless, objective standards of quality contribute quantifiable benchmarks, such as ISO 9001.
According to Keysight's Quality Policy, the company will maintain and continually improve the effectiveness of our product and service business management systems to conform to the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard or more stringent, or legally required standards, as dictated by specific markets.
With the support of both internal and external auditing teams, our ISO certification continues to mature and expand as demonstrated by a single, worldwide ISO 9001 certificate.
Keysight monitors the experience of our customers to enable continuous improvement through well-defined processes and everyday practices:
For many Keysight customers, the "voice" of their total experience is a member of one of our call center teams. Your first interaction might be with someone from our Contact Center team, professional and responsive, speaking local languages, and ready to resolve inquiries and requests with minimal or no transfers. You may work with one of our Technical Support team members, world-class test and measurement experts providing superior depth and breadth of experience in industry technology, applications, and standards. These are your advocates.
You measure our success, which is why we never stop asking "how are we doing?" through customer satisfaction surveys. The results show impressive improvement, but our efforts to provide a better total experience never stop.
Our suppliers, partners, and contractors represent an extension of the products and services we provide, so we expect them to uphold the same standards of quality that we expect of ourselves. Suppliers must demonstrate common sense, good judgment, and a strong commitment to conduct business in an ethical, socially responsible, and environmentally sustainable manner.
Keysight carefully chooses suppliers based upon stringent and defined criteria, and then works closely with those suppliers to ensure quality.
Supplier expectations and performance feedback are driven by TQRDCE, representing Technology, Quality, Responsiveness, Delivery, Cost, and Environmental and Social Responsibility. Through clear expectations, Keysight strives to maximize customer satisfaction and responsiveness to change and to provide a framework for effective communication.
Our suppliers must adhere to environmental and social responsibility principles that are similar to those valued by Keysight. In 2004, Keysight developed the Keysight Supplier Code of Conduct, which requires suppliers to adopt sound environmental, health, and safety management practices and incorporates eight International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions identified as fundamental to the rights of human beings at work. Keysight has programs in place to monitor our suppliers' conformance with the Code of Conduct.
Keysight is committed to treating customers in accordance with the company's Standards of Business Conduct and Privacy policies.
Keysight greatly values its reputation for ethical behavior, honesty, and fair dealing. Upholding that reputation is the responsibility of every Keysight employee as documented in Keysight's Standards of Business Conduct, which include but are not limited to:
We give the highest priority to protecting your privacy and complying with privacy laws around the globe. Our goal is to treat your personal data in a lawful and honest fashion.
