Conflict Minerals Overview
Becoming effective on July 21, 2010, Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires companies regulated by the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) to inquire into the origin of conflict minerals in their supply chain and report on the due diligence or reasonable inquiries to determine
whether conflict minerals contained in their products are sourced from the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) or adjoining country or if they are from recycled or scrap sources.
Companies within the scope of the Dodd-Frank Act will be expected to know and disclose the source of conflict minerals in their products.
The SEC regulations clarify the requirements and due dates needed to support the disclosure report to the SEC.
The SEC disclosure requirements apply to US stock market listed companies that are subject to the US Securities Exchange Act.
Ecliptek is a privately held company and is not listed on the US stock market. As such, it is not by law, subject to the Dodd-Frank Act.
While Ecliptek Corporation is not subject by law to the requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act, we are committed to assisting our customers in complying with the reporting obligations
required under Section 1502 of the Act, as well as the related rules and regulations issued by the SEC, including the requirement to conduct reasonable country of origin
inquiries into the source of any conflict minerals used in its products.
Ecliptek Corporation Conflict Minerals Program
In an effort to assist our customers with compliance to the obligations of the Dodd-Frank Act,
Ecliptek Corporation has implemented a Conflict Minerals Program to address this legislation and is committed to meeting the requirements of all applicable conflict minerals related laws and regulations.
The Ecliptek Corporation Conflict Minerals Program is implemented with guidance obtained from the Final Rules of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act published August 22nd, 2012.
To help customers meet the SEC’s final rule, Ecliptek Corporation uses an industry standard tool developed to facilitate the disclosure
and communication of information regarding smelters and refiners that provide material to our supply chain. This tool is based on the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)
and Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT).
Ecliptek Corporation is diligently working to ensure that our supply chain is free of conflict minerals and we will continue to provide regular updates regarding our progress
on this important objective. Ecliptek has established a Conflict Minerals Team that meets regularly to coordinate all company activities and establish company policy.
Please contact our Global Customer Support team if you have any questions about our program.
