Insider Trading Policy
VIAVI complies with securities regulations and has established certain protocols to help prevent misuse of confidential, non-public information.

Conflict Minerals Policy
VIAVI and its subsidiaries are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity, and environmental responsibility.
VIAVI is committed to complying with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, as well as the applicable requirements of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which aims to prevent the use of minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or in adjoining countries (conflict minerals).
VIAVI suppliers are required to commit to conducting due diligence on the origin and chain of custody of minerals in accordance with OECD guidance to help ensure that smelters and refiners in their supply chain sourcing minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas are either compliant with the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process assessment protocols or are actively working towards becoming compliant.
