Statement on Conflict Minerals

Conflict minerals are minerals which are extracted in conflict zones (a.o. Democratic Republic of Congoand its neighboring countries) and sold to finance and thus perpertuate such conflicts. If mined in conflict zones, the minerals columbite-tantalite, cassiterite and wolframine (which contain the metals tin, tantalum and tungsten respectively), their deratives, as well as gold are considered conflict minerals. These minerals are, along with gold, referred to as “3TG”.

Below US and EU regulations on conflict minerals currently exist:

  • Section 1502 of the US Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, applicable to listed and US based companies;
  • EU Conflict Minerals Regulation 2017/821, applicable to EU importers whose annual import volume of the minerals concerned exceeds the volume treshold set by the Regulation.

Sentech takes every effort to comply with both the European and US rules on conflict minerals and to source minerals through our supply chain in a responsible manner.

We require our suppliers not to supply us with components and/or material containing conflict minerals, and work with them to identify and prevent the supply of such minerals.
