Conflict Free Materials Statement
As a leading distributor of electronic components, Masline Electronics, Inc. is committed to ensuring the safety and protection of people worldwide. We support ending the violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from location described as “Conflict Region.”
The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission adopted final rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. We support these requirements to further the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in designated regions, which has been partially financed by the exploitation and trade of “conflict minerals.”
- Support the aims and objectives of U.S. legislation regarding the supply of “conflict minerals”.
- Do not knowingly procure specified materials originating in the “conflict regions.”
Ensure compliance with these requirements and ask our suppliers to undertake due diligence with their supply chains to assure specified materials are not being sourced from conflict regions.
If we discover the use of these minerals in products, parts, components, or any material we procure believing them to be “conflict free,” we will take appropriate actions to transition products to be “conflict free.”
