Minerals produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and neighboring African countries are in widespread use by industries around the world. Armed insurgents who receive funds and profit from this mining, directly or indirectly, are said to be heavily involved in internal strife accompanied by serious human rights violations in this region.
Under these circumstances, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reached a decision in August 2012 to make it mandatory for all concerned firms listed on the stock market in the United States to disclose information on their procurement of specified minerals (the "conflict minerals" in Note 1), beginning in 2014. Studies to this end are already widening throughout corporate supply chains, and specification of smelters in the distribution process is considered particularly important.
For any inquiries about Nitto.
