Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

August 15, 2016

To Whom It May Concern:

On August 22, 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published regulations implementing the conflict minerals reporting obligations of Section 1502 of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act of 2010. The rules require manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain conflict minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. “Conflict Minerals” in this context refer to specific minerals originating from mines controlled by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries. The specific metals in question are:

  •  Coltan (columbite tantalite) and its derivatives (Tantalum)
  •  Cassiterite and its derivatives (Tin)
  •  Wolframite and its derivatives (Tungsten)
  •  Gold
Gold Tech is committed to complying with this legislation and plans to comply with forthcoming regulations to enable designation of all Gold Tech products as “Conflict Free”.

Based on our purchasing policy and supplier selection, it is considered highly unlikely that any conflict minerals are used in the manufacturing of our products. The enclosed Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template is indication of the sustained due diligence on Gold Tech’s part to to comply with the regulations regarding conflict minerals and our commitment to support efforts by our customers to reach a common goal to utilize a responsible supply chain.
