Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

Altek Electronics is committed to social responsibility and ethical business practices. We support the Dodd-Frank Section 1502 legislation and the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) efforts to discourage companies from engaging in trade that supports conflicts and human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and neighboring countries. To this end we do not knowingly purchase products containing conflict minerals. Further, we require our suppliers, and their complete supply chain, to comply with Dodd-Frank Section 1502 and take reasonable steps to ensure that the tungsten, tin, tantalum and gold used in their products originate from outside the conflict region or come from mines and smelters that are certified as conflict free by an independent third party as documented in their Conflict Minerals Policy Statement and/or EICC Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. If Altek becomes aware of a supplier whose supply chain includes conflict minerals from conflict mines, Altek will take appropriate action up to and including termination of the commercial relationship.
