5 A. Executive Summary Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation July 25, 2013 On September 3, 2002, Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation (Fairchild Semiconductor) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to voluntarily participate in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) as an Importer. By entering into that partnership with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Fairchild Semiconductor acknowledged the importance of maintaining the integrity and security of their international supply chain. Fairchild Semiconductor submitted to CBP their required C-TPAT security profile that was reviewed and approved. The security profile summarized the procedures Fairchild Semiconductor has in place to ensure effective supply chain security. To ensure the security measures declared in a participant's C-TPAT security profile are carried out and continue to be effective, CBP created the C-TPAT revalidation process in accordance with SAFE Port Act guidelines, enacted into Federal Law in October As noted below and as described in the attached report, that process allowed CBP and representatives of Fairchild Semiconductor to jointly review their C-TPAT security profile and assess its overall effectiveness via onsite visits and procedural reviews. On April 17, 2013, CBP selected Fairchild Semiconductor to participate in a C-TPAT revalidation. The CBP revalidation team met with Fairchild Semiconductor (Section E) on June 5, A visit was made to Fairchild Semiconductor's foreign manufacturing facility and nonrelated logistics service provider located in Cebu City, Philippines. The CBP revalidation team reviewed the importer's security procedures and systems in place. The group worked together to review and discuss the overall supply chain security program for Fairchild Semiconductor, including their interaction with business partners and review the company's efforts to correct any gaps noted in the original validation report. A closeout meeting was also held on July 25, 2013 to discuss the findings and other issues pertaining to the C-TPAT revalidation. Fairchild Semiconductor, established in 1957, is a public company and a global supplier of highperformance power products with corporate offices located in South Portland, Maine. The company designs and manufactures analog mixed signal and electronic components for various electronic applications, including optoelectronic products. Fairchild Semiconductor employs approximately 9,000 personnel and has over 35 subsidiaries throughout the globe that are focused on sales and customer service, design, research and development, or manufacturing. The company primarily contracts airlines to ship their commodity to the U.S. from manufacturing sites, approximately 98% of the company s total shipments are transported via air. The remaining 2% are shipped in containers by contracted sea carriers. In 2012, Fairchild Semiconductor s total revenue was $1.4 billion. The company is a participant of the Authorized Economic Operator programs in Europe and South Korea. Page 1

6 For this year s validation process, CBP selected Fairchild Semiconductor s Cebu City supply chain in the Philippines. The majority of cargo from this site is destined to the U.S. via air freight. Once the product has been inventoried, bar-coded, picked, packed, and invoiced, it is temporarily staged for shipping. All shipping documentation is confirmed by a Fairchild Semiconductor s manager prior to loading onto contracted conveyances. FedEx is responsible for shipping cargo from the supplier site to the air cargo facility. However, it subcontracts, Airlift Asia Inc., a logistics service provider, to move the freight to their site on their behalf. Fairchild Semiconductor s final product is loaded onto subcontracted box-trucks and transported to the Philippines Economic Zone Authority s (PEZA) Customs Officers for processing prior to heading to the air cargo facility. Once processed by Philippines Customs Officers, the goods are transported to the air cargo facility with no further stops. At the air cargo facility, 100% of the cargo is verified and handed off to the designated air carriers for x-ray inspections and loading onto aircraft. FedEx and Airlift Asia Inc. are Fairchild Semiconductor's business partners within the Cebu City supply chain. These companies have access to Fairchild Semiconductor's facility and cargo. However, the importer works with these business partners to ensure that pertinent security measures are in place and adhered to throughout the supply chain. Fairchild Semiconductor's contracted security company, Probe Security Agency, also has limited access to cargo and conveyances. Probe Security Agency officers are responsible for inspecting commercial vehicles upon entering the facility. Several other companies are contracted as in-house service providers but do not have unsupervised access to cargo or the facility. Based on the C-TPAT security profile, the validation activities summarized within and their willingness to implement the recommendations contained in this report, it is the opinion of the CBP validation team that Fairchild Semiconductor has acknowledged the importance of their supply chain security. Included in this report for Fairchild Semiconductor are the findings of the revalidation team and CBP's overall assessment of their supply chain security program. A response to the revalidation report is due within 90 days of its issuance to Fairchild Semiconductor. Page 2

7 B. Findings The security profile submitted by Fairchild Semiconductor in addition to the supplemental information volunteered by its representatives during meetings and site visits provides a comprehensive and verifiable account of their security procedures. Management was available to answer any questions and provide a tour of the facility. Management Support / Self-Assessments / Audits Successful participation in the C-TPAT program is the result of a high level of managerial support given to the program. Throughout the validation process, management was engaged in supporting the C-TPAT program and was focused on monitoring and improving security procedures through periodic self-assessments. Fairchild Semiconductor 82 Running Hill Road South Portland, Maine United States Prior to the foreign validation, the C-TPAT validation team conducted outreach to Fairchild Semiconductor in order to verify their compliance with the following core C-TPAT minimumsecurity criteria for importers, Risk Assessment and Business Partner Requirements. A visit to the domestic facility was not conducted. The following are the findings of the validation team based on communication with the company by phone and documentation review. Selected Foreign Site Supply Chain Security / Risk Assessments - Verification Fairchild Semiconductor has conducted a comprehensive assessment of their security practices based on C-TPAT minimum security criteria. Supplier and freight forwarder visits are conducted at foreign by Fairchild Semiconductor s corporate staff to evaluate security procedures and methods. Reports are created and include vulnerabilities or deficiencies discovered during assessments that are required to be addressed prior to a subsequent visit. Risk assessment reports were provided to the CBP team for review. Based on Fairchild Semiconductor s corporate policy, all suppliers must be subject to verification of compliance with C-TPAT security criteria; this includes suppliers that are not participating in the C-TPAT program, either by choice or ineligibility. Business Partner Requirements Fairchild Semiconductor has written and verifiable processes for the screening of all business partners. Security verifications are conducted on their suppliers and service providers on a reoccurring basis to ensure supply chain security is maintained. Business partner contracts stipulate security measures partners must apply and adhere to within their supply chains. A Dun & Bradstreet query is conducted on all prospective business partners. A visit to a partner's site is Page 3

8 conducted to determine security measures and location. Fairchild Semiconductor verifies the partner s government identification numbers to ensure legitimacy. Professional associations and business references are contacted and verified as well. The importer requires its partners, where available, to participate in the C-TPAT program or its equivalent. Business partners that participate in the C-TPAT program are required to provide their Status Verification Interface (SVI) number. The company verifies the SVI status within the C-TPAT Security Link Portal for all partners on a monthly basis. For partners that are not able to participate in C-TPAT, Fairchild Semiconductor requires them to have security practices in place that meet the minimum security criteria. The company verifies non C-TPAT partners security measures through a security questionnaire provided to the partner. On an annual basis, Fairchild Semiconductor reviews its business partners' practices to ensure adequate security measures are still in place. Fairchild Semiconductor requires its business partners to provide evidence of certification if they are participating in a supply chain security program administered by a foreign Customs Administration or private organization. Business partners must provide this information in the security questionnaire provided by the importer. Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines Inc. Mactan Economic Zone 1 Lapu Lapu City, Philippines The validation meeting was held on June 19, The meeting was conducted at Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines Inc. in Lapu Lapu City.

Their product is primarily transported to its related importer, Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation, based in the U.S. However, clients such as Dell, Apple, and Samsung purchase the imported product to insert in their electronics. The company sends approximately seven shipments a week to the U.S. Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines shares an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system with its clients. Upon the client's electronic request, the manufacturer produces and prepares product for transport. Once all documentation has been verified by the manufacturer and logistics provider, shipments are transported to the PEZA Customs Officers for processing. Seals are placed after the Customs Officers have reviewed and approved the process for shipping. Cargo is transported to the logistics provider's air freight facility and then the airport terminal. Approximately 98% of product shipped from this site is moved via air carriers, the remaining 2% is moved via sea. Page 4

9 Container / Conveyance / Transport Security In order to maintain a high level of cargo integrity, Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines requires multiple company employees to be present during the loading process, one of which is always required to be a supervisor. The supervisor ensures employees load the correct cargo according to the shipping documents and that no unauthorized cargo is accidentally or purposefully loaded onto the trailer. Box-trucks are primarily utilized to ship the company s cargo. Procedures are in place to verify the physical integrity of box-trucks prior to the loading process. Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines conveyance procedures are utilized to prevent unauthorized introduction of materials and people into their cargo. The company requires its transportation service provider to conduct a truck/trailer 12-point inspection before arriving to their facility. Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines then conducts a documented 12-point inspection at their site prior to initiating the loading process. The trailer structure, door locking mechanism, and door hinges are also inspected prior to loading. Supervisors at times observe the inspection process. The integrity of instruments of international traffic is maintained while en route by utilizing an informal system of tracking and monitoring. Fairchild Semiconductor Philippines cargo is shipped from their site to the FedEx facility less than five minutes away and then taken to the airport cargo terminal.

Expectations, Actions Required and Recommendations Consistent with the C-TPAT Partner Agreement and the goals of the program, it is expected that your company will insert the following management practices into supply chain security processes: Procedural changes should be made when necessary and new policies written as additional threats emerge. An annual review of your security profile should be completed in the C-TPAT Security Link Portal. The annual review should identify any enhancements or updates to your security profile and any changes made to your company profile. For guidance and further clarification regarding the annual security profile review please follow the link to the Q & A s webpage. The CBP Supply Chain Security Specialist (SCSS) should be kept up to date on issues or changes regarding contact information, security procedures, and security practices. A procedure should be in place to ensure the SCSS is notified immediately in the event of a supply chain security breach and procedures should be in place to ensure this occurs. If applicable to your company's business model, management should ensure that all business partners are following the same practices and procedures in all of their facilities worldwide. Recommendations / actions required in this report should be implemented throughout the company's entire international supply chain. Acknowledgement of expectations and, if applicable, responses to Recommendations and/or Actions Required is required. Please respond to the validation report within 90 days through the C-TPAT Security Link Portal main menu by selecting the 'Partner' tab and clicking on 'Validation Response'.
