Vendor Compliance Policies

Vendor Requirements

All prospective Tractor Supply vendors are required to review and sign a Vendor Agreement (VA), which incorporates by reference a Vendor Requirements Manual (VRM). Signing the Vendor Agreement is a prerequisite to obtaining a Vendor number enabling a Vendor to sell products to TSC. Both the VA and the VRM place obligations on the Vendor to help ensure that the entire supply chain of product delivery is performed in a legally compliant, uniform and ethical manner that respects human rights.

TSC has established certain Vendor requirements for the conduct of business in addition to those set forth in the VA which are codified in its Vendor Requirements Manual. At the foundation of TSC’s business and its relationship with its team members and stakeholders are TSC’s Mission and ten core Values, including ethics, respect and accountability. The overarching message is to ‘always do the right thing’. The VRM states TSC “expects our Vendors to understand and uphold the same.” The VRM contains a Vendor Code of Conduct and Ethical Business Standards which Vendors are obligated to follow. A portion of the Code focuses on labor practices.


Human Rights Policy

TSC utilizes internal staff and third party social responsibility firms to monitor and prevent human rights abuse in our supply chain. The terms and conditions of the VA require the Vendors to follow the company’s human rights policies which are in accordance with numerous laws and regulations. Examples include the various laws and regulations of the federal government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and the safety and security measures of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).

TSC has a strict policy prohibiting the use of forced or child labor in the manufacturing of the merchandise that it purchases and seeks Vendors who share TSC’s commitment to the promotion of best practices and continuous improvements and who, at a minimum, meet TSC’s standards of conduct in areas such as Forced Labor; Child Labor; Human Slavery/Human Trafficking; Compensation; Benefits; Hours of Work/Overtime; Health and Safety; Environmental Regulations; Equal Opportunity and following all applicable laws.
