Conflict Minerals Policy

 

On August 22, 2012, the US Securities and Exchange Commission adopted final rules to implement, starting from 2013, reporting and disclosure requirements related to “Conflict Minerals”, as directed by Article 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of July, 2010. “Conflict Minerals” refer to gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo and surrounding countries. Violent conflict in the region has been allegedly financed by trade of such minerals.

 

As a member of the global society, Atrust Computer Corp. (“Atrust”) supports the initiative aiming to prevent violence, and therefore decides to adopt a Conflict Minerals free policy. To enforce this policy, we need all of our suppliers and partners to take the following actions:


 

1.

Enforce a policy ensuring visibility of mineral sourcing, conduct due diligence to confirm origins of gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten contained in their products, and provide Atrust with report on minerals used in their products in a form as provided by Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (EICC/GeSI). 

2.

Execute a declaration to warrant and represent that their products do not contain Conflict Minerals.
