LES Standards


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.

The LES Standards Initiative encourages IP thought leaders around the globe to participate in the public review of LES draft standards as part of the standardization process. As an Accredited Standards Developer of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), LES provides the 60-day public review period to encourage manufacturers, distributors, and any interested stakeholder to represent each organization’s best interests while helping to shape this field for the future.
