Lightning Connector is Waterproof, Manufacturers Must Comply With Supplier Code?

Details emerging from Apple's annual MFi (Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod) manufacturers' conference reveal that the Lightning connector is waterproof and that manufacturers may be forced to comply with Apple's supplier code of conduct, according to TUAW.

The supplier code, which has been implemented and expanded over the past few years as Apple and manufacturing partner Foxconn have come under increasing scrutiny for working conditions, currently applies only to Apple's manufacturing supply chain partners and component vendors. Pushing it out to the larger accessory ecosystem would be a concrete example of Apple using its 800-pound-gorilla status in the consumer electronics space to influence more companies to behave ethically on worker rights, environmental issues and more.

It's unclear how manufacturers will react to this requirement or what the schedule, audit requirements or penalties for non-compliance might be.

@william I'm sorry your reply is As bad as this cable. Is the phone waterproof no so why the cable for a few ics come on, if water was the reason for this cable I won't my phone to be waterproof sod the cable £30 cable or £650 phone. How much water do you have round your computer chargers iPod pads phone. How many electrical items/leads in your house are waterproof? Oh may be for use in the rain? Computer wet dead iPhone wet screen dead iPad wet dead ect ect. At least you have a working lead its a joke. But I rely do want to know why you need a waterproof lead? Oh (waterproof) will it come with a certificate stating how much pressure under water it can withstand? may be its just splash proof.
