Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act requires publicly-traded companies subject to SEC regulation to report the presence of certain “conflict materials” in their products that originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. The term “conflict minerals” refer to columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, wolframite, and gold, or derivatives which are limited to tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (3TGs). Silicon Designs, Inc. supports the humanitarian goals of conflict minerals legislation. However, SDI is not a publicly-traded company, is not subject to SEC regulation, and is therefore not subject to conflict minerals reporting requirements.
In order to support its customers that are subject to this legislation, SDI has adopted a Conflict-Free Minerals Sourcing Policy. SDI’s suppliers are expected to provide materials and components that are conflict free, which means either: 1) any 3TGs necessary to the functionality or production of supplied materials must not directly or indirectly fund armed conflict in the DRC or adjoining countries, or 2) any 3TGs must be from recycled or scrap sources.
We understand the cost of conflict minerals reporting compliance can be high, especially for small manufacturers like SDI. However, we expect our suppliers to use due diligence with their own suppliers to ensure full compliance.
SDI supplies to companies all over the globe, and every one of its customers expects a quality product. In turn, SDI expects quality, conformity, and a commitment to uphold the same standards for excellence that SDI values. Q-Notes are both flow-downs and originating from SDI.
