Regulatory Information

    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. 

Conflict Minerals

   The SEC defines Conflict Minerals as tin (Sn), tungsten (W), tantalum (Ta) and gold (Au). These four minerals are collectively referred to as 3TG.
