Conflict Minerals Statement
On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the final rule regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Under this rule, publicly traded companies must report to the SEC the presence of conflict minerals originating in the DRC or adjoining countries in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture if the conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of a product.
While Circuit Check, Inc. is not a publicly traded company we understand that many of our customers are required to do their due diligence and in the process have inquired or will be inquiring about the use of conflict minerals in our products.
Accordingly, Circuit Check’s policy on Conflict Minerals declares:
- Circuit Check strives to have a Conflict Free supply chain and is committed to sourcing products and materials from non-conflict sources.
- Circuit Check expects its suppliers have processes in place to ensure their products and materials do not contain Conflict Minerals that originate from mines within the DRC and surrounding region.
Circuit Check understands the importance of this issue to our customers. We are committed to the pursuit of responsible procurement practices and have no intention, directly or indirectly, of abetting the human rights violations identified in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “DRC”) and adjoining countries.
