Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. information regarding "Conflict Minerals"- February 2014
In July 2010, the U.S. Government enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Dodd-Frank Act"). The Dodd-Frank Act includes a provision requiring U.S. publically traded companies that manufacture (or contract to manufacture) goods to conduct due diligence into their supply chains and disclose any products containing "Conflict Minerals" (including tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.
The U.S. Congress determined that the proceeds from the extraction, sale and trade of these Conflict Minerals are used to support the on-going conflicts and inhumane treatment of people in these countries. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently released additional regulations which implemented this portion of the Dodd-Frank Act.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation views the abuse of human rights by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo and its neighboring countries as issues of the utmost concern. We are implementing measures to ensure transparency of our supply chain and responsible mineral procurement to avoid the use of Conflict Minerals.
In order to assist our customers in their efforts to comply with this reporting provision of the Dodd-Frank Act, Mitsubishi Electric's Factory Automation Group has completed the following EICC reporting templates for its industrial automation products.
