|Conflict Minerals Statement|
This document details Central Semiconductor’s policy and standard practice regarding the sourcing and utilization of “Conflict Minerals.” Information contained herein is collected from Central’s supply chain and manufacturing facilities worldwide; due diligence has been applied to the accuracy and verification of this information.
Central Semiconductor is committed to conducting its operations in an ethical, as well as socially and environmentally responsible manner. Accordingly, Central fully supports the efforts of international organizations such as the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) to eliminate the use of minerals that fund armed conflict and human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. Additionally, Central is committed to applying due diligence to the continued absence of such materials in its supply chain.
Central’s supply chain partners are under advisement to apply similar due diligence with their supply chain partners to ensure the continued elimination of conflict minerals. Specifically, the conflict minerals that may be used in the manufacture of semiconductor components include: gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten. Central’s supply chain partners are expected to fully comply with the guidelines and disciplines outlined by the EICC and GeSI as they pertain to these minerals.
In keeping with industry standard and ethical business practices, and based upon information provided by its supply chain, Central Semiconductor uses only minerals sourced through smelters verified as compliant as identified in the EICC Conflict-Free Smelter Program.
