Procurement Policy regarding Conflict Minerals

In July 2010, the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act came into effect in the U.S. Section 1502 of the Act designates the four minerals (gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten) originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries (DRC countries) as "conflict minerals". It obliged American listed companies to report the use of the four minerals to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The purpose of this Act is to eradicate financial sources to armed insurgents that are executing anti-government activities and violating human rights.

Nippon Chemi-Con Corporation agrees to the gist of Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Act, acting as a member of "the Responsible Minerals Trade Working Group" at JEITA. Nippon Chemi-Con Corporation and its group companies advance an effort to fulfill our social responsibility in regards to procurement of minerals, improving the transparency of supply chain for instance.
