TE Connectivity is committed to assuring ethical and responsible sourcing in our Global Supply Chain
On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published regulations implementing Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act governing Conflict Minerals. The Dodd Frank Act requires companies to perform due diligence on the source and chain of custody of Conflict Minerals to determine whether Conflict Minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or its adjoining countries are present in and are necessary to the functionality or production of our products.
The SEC defines Conflict Minerals as tin (Sn), tungsten (W), tantalum (Ta) and gold (Au). These four minerals are collectively referred to as 3TG.
TE is committed to the driving intent behind Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street and Consumer Protection Act, and in assuring ethical sourcing for its customers. As an SEC registrant, TE Connectivity complies with the SEC regulations requiring supply chain reporting and reasonable due diligence with respect to the sourcing of Conflict Minerals and the products in which they are contained. TE recognizes its obligation to provide our customers with the same information we collect from our supply base, offering corporate transparency and enabling customers to meet their own respective SEC reporting requirements.
