Conflict Minerals Policy
This statement is based upon information collected from the PC Specialties, Inc. manufacturing facility and the supply chain for this facility.
“Conflict Minerals” refers to the following minerals: 1) columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan (the metal ore from which tantalum is extracted); 2) cassiterite (the metal ore from which tin is extracted); 3) gold; 4) wolframite (the metal ore from which tungsten is extracted); 5) their derivatives; or 6) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the DRC Countries.
PC Specialties, Inc. will:
- Not knowingly procure specified metals that originate from facilities in the “Conflict Region” that are not certified as “conflict free”.
- Ensure compliance with these requirements, and ask our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to assure that specified metals are being sourced only from: mines and smelters outside the “Conflict Region” or mines and smelters which have been certified by an independent third party as “conflict free” if sourced within the “Conflict Region”.
- This due diligence includes having our suppliers provide written evidence documenting that raw materials used to produce gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten, used in the materials to manufacture components and products supplied to PC Specialties, Inc. originate from outside the “Conflict Region” or if they originate from within the “Conflict Region”, that the mines or smelters be certified as “conflict free” by an independent third party. The aim is to ensure that only “conflict free” materials and components are used in products that we procure.
The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) have requested that companies undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chain to assure that specified metals are not being sourced from mines in the Conflict Region, which are controlled by non-government military groups, or unlawful military factions. PC Specialties, Inc. supports the actions of the EICC and GeSI and has either obtained, or is in the process of obtaining, information from our current metal suppliers concerning the origin of the metals that are used in the manufacture of PC Specialties, Inc. products.
Suppliers of metals produced from Conflict Minerals, used in the manufacture of PC Specialties, Inc. products, must demonstrate that they understand and support EICC-GeSI actions. Suppliers must provide written evidence of due diligence documenting the source of raw materials used in the manufacture of the metal products purchased by PC Specialties, Inc. Due diligence from each supplier must include, where applicable, completion of the EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals reporting template.
