Conflict Minerals Policy
“Conflict minerals” originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) are sometimes mined and sold, “under the control of armed groups”, to “finance conflict characterized by extreme levels of violence”. Some of these minerals and the metals created from them (such as tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold) can make their way into the supply chains of the products used around the world, Parris does not use any of the conflict minerals in our products, nor do any of our suppliers.
Parris Mfg. Co. expects our suppliers to have in place policies and due diligence measures that will enable us to reasonably assure that products and components supplied to us are DRC conflict free. PMC expects our suppliers to comply with Security & Exchange Commissions (SEC) final rule and conduct their business in alignment with PMC supply chain responsibility expectations.
In support of this policy, PMC will:
– Exercise due diligence with relevant suppliers encourage our suppliers to do likewise with their suppliers.
– Provide, and expect our suppliers to cooperate in providing, due diligence information to confirm our supply-chain is DRC conflict free.
– Collaborate with our suppliers and others on industry-wide solutions to producing products that are DRC conflict free.
– Commit to transparency in the implementation of this policy and to check with suppliers of our product, including obtaining information & providing material concerning DRC conflict free.
