This document contains EPC’s statement regarding the content of Conflict Minerals in our products. Conflict minerals are four particular metals (Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten or Gold), which when sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and/or surrounding countries have a high risk of funding rebel groups or terrorist activity.
Based upon information collected from EPC’s supply chain, EPC does not knowingly use metals derived from the Conflict Region in our products.
We expect our suppliers to engage in due diligence to analyze their sources and to complete the EICC Conflict Minerals reporting template. Suppliers must ensure that all metals used to manufacture products for use by EPC originate from certified conflict free smelters.
EPC conducts periodic reviews with our vendors to ensure that they are in compliance with this policy and we obtain certifications from these vendors that their metal supplies do not come from the Conflict Regions. If we become aware that our supply chain includes metals from the Conflict Region we will take action to promptly review the circumstances and remedy the situation as appropriate.
