Corporate & Supplier Codes Of Conduct

Company Code of Conduct

The Company's Code of Conduct is part of Callaway Golf Company's effort to conduct its global business legally. The Code applies to all board members, officers and employees of the Company and its subsidiaries. All Company employees are required to comply with the Company's Code of Conduct, which includes provisions designed to address the principle that child, prison, or forced labor are not permitted at any Company supplier operation. The Company's Code of Conduct is applicable throughout the world, and the Company trains employees on these standards from time to time, including new hire training for all incoming employees and ongoing training of all company employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management. This ongoing training specifically addresses education on human trafficking and slavery prohibitions within the product supply chain.

Supplier Responsibility

Callaway Golf strives to follow the applicable law on socially responsible business practices among our employees and throughout our supply chain. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is designed to educate our suppliers about the importance of providing safe working conditions, treating workers with respect and using responsible manufacturing processes. If you have any questions about our supplier responsibility efforts, please send inquiries to corporatecompliance@callawaygolf.com.

Supplier Audits

The Company's audit program evaluates suppliers' compliance with the Company's Supplier Code of Conduct. Various types of announced audits are conducted under this program, including onsite audits conducted or attended by Company personnel, collaborative or self-audits, and periodic third-party on-site audits of practices and underlying management systems. If deficiencies are identified, suppliers are directed to produce corrective action plans. The corrective action plans typically outline how a supplier will resolve issues uncovered in audits. If any compliance issues are identified, the Company may terminate the supplier relationship or will require action by the supplier to rectify the problem within a designated timeframe.

Currently, site audits are scheduled at most direct supplier sites every two years. These audits are conducted by the Company or by a third party auditing company. The audits are semi-announced audits. This means that the suppliers are given a window of time when the audit will take place, but the exact date of the audit within the timeframe is unannounced.
