Public Review of New Standard Protecting Intellectual Property in the Global Supply Chain
Developed by the LES IP Protection in Supply Chain Standards Committee
, the draft standard defines a common set of expectations for what companies can and should do to protect all types of their own IP and the IP of customers, suppliers, and partners.
The Committee’s vision is to achieve standardization around how companies develop and implement an intellectual property protection management system. This standard seeks to supplements legal and contractual IP protection methods through performance standards and business processes that define the management systems required to protect all types of intellectual property (IP) in the global supply chain.
