DWPH Conflict Minerals Policy
In 2010, the “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” was signed into law in the US, in which the Section 1502 imposes on listed companies new reporting requirements if their products contain any “Conflict Minerals,” which are defined as tantalum (Ta), tin (Sn), tungsten (W), and gold (Au), and if such “Conflict Minerals” were originated in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country.
DWPH advocates all initiatives to respect human rights and adopts the Conflict Minerals Policy that restricts the use of any “Conflict Minerals” originated in the DRC or an adjoining country. In addition, DWPH continuously collaborates with our direct suppliers to undertake the following measurements:
1) Identify mineral source within its supply chain up to the mineral suppliers as well as communicating the DWPH Conflict Minerals Policy to our counterparties at the same time.
2) Encourage the adoption of mineral source that comply with Conflict-Free Smelter (CFS) program launched by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC).
3) Once any mineral source is identified as not compliant with the CFS program, the relevant supplier is required to suspend the supplying relationship until the issue is resolved.
