Statement and Policy
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and the Securities and Exchange Commission Rules adopted in connection therewith, require certain corporations to report the use of “Conflict Minerals” in the manufacture of their products. Generally, Conflict Minerals collectively refer to cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, including tantalum, tin, and tungsten, which originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or specified adjoining countries.
BPM Microsystems Inc., as a privately held company, is not subject to the Conflict Minerals rules and reporting requirements. We do understand many of our customers may be subject to this rule and we are committed to helping our customers comply with their reporting requirements.
We periodically conduct Conflict Minerals surveys of our relevant suppliers in conformance with IPC1755 to create BPM Microsystems Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT). The purpose of this document is to collect sourcing information on tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold used in BPM’s products.
BPM will continue to work with our suppliers to ensure that we are able to identify the use of Conflict Minerals in our supply chain and that the representations made in our CMRT compliance statement remain accurate. To that end, we reserve the right to amend this statement at any time based on subsequent developments or information.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this statement, please do not hesitate to contact us.
