ARMEL Electronics is committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals through our supply chain, which consists of domestic suppliers located in the USA. In compliance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”), we report annually to our customers on our use of conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold) originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) or any of the DRC’s adjoining countries in products manufactured by the company.
Underlying the Dodd-Frank disclosure requirements is a concern that conflict minerals originating in the DRC or adjoining countries may be mined and sold by armed groups to finance civil violence. These minerals can make their way into the supply chains of the products used by consumers and businesses around the world. Tracing these minerals in the international supply chain is complex. Fortunately, our domestic, USA-based supply chain helps minimize these risks.
We currently focus our compliance efforts in the following areas:
We recognize these rules have required, and will continue to require, time and effort on the part of our suppliers, and our company, and we are fully committed to ensuring full and complete compliance with ensuring no raw materials contain conflict minerals.
