Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Pegatron Corp., a maker of Apple Inc.’s iPhones, said it hasn’t been informed of any pending inspections of factory work conditions by labor groups, a day after the U.S. company said checks would start this spring.
Pegatron is aware of Apple’s corporate social responsibility policies, Charles Lin, chief financial officer of the Taipei-based company, said by telephone today. The client hasn’t informed him about any upcoming audits, Lin said.
Apple said the Washington-based Fair Labor Association began checks of working conditions at supplier Foxconn Technology Group yesterday, about a month after the iPhone maker became the first technology company to join the association. Audits at Pegatron and Quanta Computer Inc. are scheduled to start this spring, Cupertino, California-based Apple said in a statement.
The association’s members include Nike Inc. and Nestle SA.
Carol Hsu, a spokeswoman for Taoyuan, Taiwan-based Quanta, a maker of iPods and notebooks for Apple, declined to comment.
