Hectronic Conflict Minerals Policy
 
 

The mining and trading of Coltan (from which Tantalum is made), Wolframite (from which Tungsten is made), Cassiterite (from which Tin is made) and Gold, originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or from countries in the so-called DRC Region have financed conflict, resulting in widespread human rights violations and environmental degradation. Section 1502(b) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Conflict Minerals Law) requires SEC reporting companies to undertake an inquiry as to the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals and to report their “DRC Conflict-Free” status.

 
Hectronic fully supports the objectives of this legislation, which aims to minimize violence and environmental damage in the DRC Region. We will comply with all applicable obligations under Conflict Minerals Law.

Our commitment:

• Support the aims and objectives of the U.S. legislation on the supply of “conflict minerals”.
• Do 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 Hectronic, 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 Hectronic sell and deliver to our customers.
