Conflict Materials

It is the policy of Tosoh SMD Inc., to procure material from sources that share our vision of adhering to the requirements established by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) to eliminate the use of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold materials that originate from areas deemed as “Conflict Regions”, which include the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. Tosoh SMD relies on the auditing process established by the EICC and GeSI to verify that sources and their supply chains are conflict free, or audits conducted by independent third party auditors which ensure and verify that the source is compliant with conflict material guidelines established under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
