C.E. Precision Assemblies, Inc. Company Conflict Minerals Policy
In 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued final rules implementing the Conflict Minerals disclosure provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Under these rules, publicly traded companies must annually report on their use of conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold, commonly referred to as 3TG) from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. The goal of these regulations is to reduce funds going to armed groups and help end violence in the DRC Region.
Although C.E. Precision Assemblies, Inc. is a privately held company, we support responsible sourcing of conflict minerals. C.E. Precision Assemblies, Inc., with the assistance of our suppliers, will perform due diligence by conducting reasonable Country of Origin Inquiries on any products we purchase to ascertain the source of the 3TG minerals. We expect our suppliers to respond in a timely manner to inquiries about purchased components and to reach out to their suppliers as necessary to provide the requested information.
C.E. Precision Assemblies, Inc. will provide the information we obtain to our customers in accordance with the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Conflict-Free Smelter Program using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.
We will continue to work with both our customers and suppliers to develop a transparent, conflict-free supply chain.
