Code of business conduct

The Code of Business Conduct contains principles that have long been part of TI's values and ethics statements. Certain behaviors have been specifically included in this Code of Business Conduct in recognition of the growing interest that investors have in the conduct of publicly-held companies, their employees and their directors. The public has every right to know what TI standards are in these areas. Furthermore, the public legitimately expects TIers to know and adhere to the standards of conduct. No provision of this Code of Business Conduct may be waived for any director or executive officer without approval of the TI Board of Directors, and appropriate public disclosure.
