Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

 

Kohsel is committed to providing customers with the highest quality products, but also aspires to the highest standards of social responsibility and ethnical conduct. Our core values support a strong commitment to economic, environmental and socially sustainable development.

In August 2012 the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) finalized requirements (Dodd-Frank-Act) for SEC reporting companies to disclose their use of Conflict Minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Republic of Congo, Central African Republic (CAR), South Sudan, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, Angola, Burundi and Tanznia.

The conflict minerals within the scope of the SEC Final Rule are tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (3TG), both in the form of ore and as refined materials. 

Kohsel is not directly affected by the legislation, but we do support human rights and wish to contribute to transparency in the supply chain. We have looked into our supply chain to ensure that our suppliers exercise appropriate conduct and are not in any way related to Conflict Minerals.

We rely on the information provided by our suppliers regarding their sourcing of these materials. We expect that any products and components, we receive from our suppliers, are not considered to be Conflict Minerals originated from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The global supply chain is very complex, and the investigation of our supply chain is therefore an ongoing process, where we will keep on ensuring that Conflict Minerals are not related to our supply chain.
