In July 2010, the United States enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) which contained a section (Sec. 1502) that regulated “Conflict Minerals”1 for the first time. The Act includes provisions that require manufacturers to perform due diligence in their supply chains to identify and disclosure the use of any Conflict Minerals and whether those Conflict Minerals originated in the “DRC Countries”2 The Act is new and regulations related to the requirements of the due diligence process have not yet been issued by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, which oversees compliance with the Conflict Minerals section of the Act.
Due to the complexities of the mineral supply chain, Adey Electronics is currently unable to verify the origin for the minerals used in our products. We do not knowingly source any product containing Conflict Minerals from the DRC Countries currently; however we are unable to provide clear supply chain verification at this time. For further documentation, please contact your Adey Electronics Customer Service Representative.
