Conflict Minerals Policy
The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has adopted rules regarding disclosure and reporting requirements with respect to “conflict minerals” as required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The rules require public companies to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold) that are necessary to the functionality or production of those products.
While Ion Beam Milling, Inc. is not a public company, it supplies companies that are subject to the Dodd-Frank Act and as such is required by its customers to only offer products that comply with the requirements of the Act.
Ion Beam Milling supports the goal of the rules to end violence and human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and surrounding countries that may be financed by proceeds from trade in these minerals. We are committed to complying with all requirements applicable to Ion Beam Milling under the rules.
Ion Beam milling will work with our customers cooperatively in connection with their conflict minerals programs, and we expect our suppliers to support us in implementing the necessary conflict minerals compliance programs. Ion Beam milling requires that suppliers provide us with conflict minerals declarations using the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and/or such other documentation as Ion Beam Milling may require.
