Conflict Minerals Policy Statement:
die-tech, inc., supports ending the violance and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the “Conflict Region“, which has been identified as the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding countries including Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Angola. As a result the United States Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The rules require manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture (or contract to manufacture) contain “conflict minerals” that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of those products.
The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, tin, tantalum, tungsten and the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future. We support these requirements to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the DRC and in surrounding countries, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of these minerals.
If we discover the use of these minerals produced in facilities that are considered to be non-conflict free, in any material we procure, we will take appropriate actions to transition product to be conflict free.
