NXP does not support or tolerate the use of NXP products in Russian or Iran-made military systems or any other application our products were not designed or licensed for, nor has NXP been found to have violated any export control or sanction laws.
NXP complies with all applicable export control and sanctions laws imposed by the countries in which we operate. While the sanctions allow for business to be done following certain conditions, NXP goes beyond the legal scope of the regulations and does not support any business in or with Russia, Belarus, and other fully embargoed countries, including Iran.
NXP vigorously audits our business partners. In addition, NXP ensures that all customers and authorized third-party distributors understand their responsibility to comply with applicable laws and regulations. These responsibilities are part of all NXP agreements and ensure there is a chain of responsibility between the parties.
Unfortunately, our efforts alone cannot prevent intentional product diversion, counterfeiting, and misuse. The Semiconductor Industry Association has recently published an article dissecting the matter, with detailed explanation on the challenges faced by the semiconductor industry as a whole in dealing with the illicit diversion of chips.
Tracking the full supply chain of semiconductor products requires detailed investigations with many parties involved. Our priority is to work with governments in official investigations aimed at identifying the supply chains that have been used to supply chips, and the items in which the chips are incorporated, to any embargoed country, including Russia or Iran. NXP supports the governments in taking appropriate actions.
