Conflict Minerals Policy
As a leading Contract Manufacturer of circuit card assemblies, cable and wire harnesses assemblies, and encapsulated product, A.M.S. is committed to ensuring the safety, protection, and well being of people worldwide. We support ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from a location described as the “Conflict Region.”
The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, as well as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. We support these requirements to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in designated regions, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of “conflict minerals”.
Our Conflict Minerals Policy Commitment:
1. Support the aims and objectives of the U.S. legislation on the supply of "conflict minerals".
2. Do not knowingly procure specified materials that originate in the "conflict region" from our suppliers.
3. Ensure compliance with these requirements and ask our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to assure that specified metals are not being sourced from conflict regions.
If we discover the use of these minerals in products we sell to be “non-conflict free”, in any material, parts or components we procure, we will take appropriate actions to transition products to be “conflict free”.
