Agilent Technologies operates under a company-wide environmental, health and safety management system (EHSMS) that applies to Agilent design, development, manufacturing, distribution, and sales and service operations worldwide. The purpose of Agilent's EHSMS is to implement the Environmental Health and Safety Policy. The EHSMS provides a framework for Agilent's business operations to make decisions regarding their environmental and OHS activities in response to changing internal and external factors. The EHSMS is supported by key processes focused on planning, implementation and operation, checking and corrective action, and management review.

Agilent achieved ISO 14001 registration of our company-wide EHSMS and our manufacturing sites under a single certificate in April 2001. Our single certificate enables us to more efficiently conduct the independent audits required to register and maintain certification at our manufacturing sites.

ISO 14001 is a voluntary international standard and registration is recognized internationally as demonstration that a company is effective in managing its impact on the environment. The registration is granted by third party reviewers under guidelines administered by ISO. The standard is consistent with the concept of sustainable development and stresses continual improvement.

Agilent's EHSMS has been implemented at R&D facilities and other large non-production facilities. These sites are not included in our ISO14001 registration.
