Conflict Metals Statement

As a manufacturer of electronic components, Acronics uses a variety of metals in products Acronics produces. Some of these metals, mined in areas of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”), may be making its way into the electronics supply chain and that profits from tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold mining in the conflict areas in the DRC, also known as “conflict metals”, may be furthering certain unfair labor practices or other human rights violations in the region. Acronics is committed to purchasing 3TG Minerals and other materials only from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers. Acronics requires our suppliers to meet conflict mineral regulatory obligations in accordance with U.S. Government, as well as local regulatory requirements and to source 3TG Minerals only from conflict free sources.

In support of this policy, Acronics will:

  • Work with our supply chain partners to trace the sources of tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold in our products to minimize and ultimately eliminate materials whose sale benefits armed groups in the DRC or any Covered Country.
  • Support industry trade groups, suppliers, and customers in establishing a verifiable supply chain that draws materials from conflict free mines.
  • Comply with Section 1502 of the Dodd/Frank Wall Street Recovery Act.
