Steps to Achieving Conflict-Free Mineral Usage
Using a tool developed by EICC, we work with our manufacturers to periodically survey their suppliers and smelters to regulate ban on conflict minerals.
Our suppliers must adhere to the international policy on the use of conflict minerals. Suppliers providing the four main conflict minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold) are also required to submit the Certificate of Origin. In addition, supplier’s smelter is recommended to have received the EICC’s Conflict Free Smelter Program Certificate and must be a qualified smelter practicing the ban of Conflict Minerals.
