Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals Statement
Compliance Statement for DRC Conflict-Free products.
Reference: Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502, reporting requirements for conflict minerals.
Conflict minerals are Columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives; or any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country.
Metals derived from these minerals are tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold. By this definition, the only minerals of concern that may be found in American Probe & Technologies products are tungsten and gold.
American Probe & Technologies, Inc. certifies that its products are manufactured with tungsten and gold that is derived from material that is DRC Conflict-Free. American Probe & Technologies provides this assurance as a result of a due diligence process that includes traceability to the source and in some cases the identification of recycled and scrap materials in the supply chain.
American Probe & Technologies is committed to maintaining this certification through a process of monitoring and verification of its sources in accordance with the guidelines of the EICC (Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and GeSI (Global e-Sustainability Initiative) template.
