P-SHINE ELECTRONIC TECH LTD. Conflict Minerals Policy Statement
3TG (Tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold)
are often mined in the context of armed conflict in the democratic republic of the Congo and surrounding countries and are therefore considered "Conflict Minerals ".
Conflict ore refers to minerals mined in situations of armed conflict and human rights violations, especially in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which are controlled by the Government of the Congolese Army and many other armed insurgent groups, such as the FDLR, Resources mined at mining sites controlled by the People's National Assembly (CNDP). It is not only Congolese people who plundered Congo's natural resources. During the war, especially Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, they also profited from Congo's resources. Today, government units in these countries continue to smuggle Congolese resources. The profits from these resources are used to support the Second Congolese War, and controlling the sites with rich mineral deposits has become one of the focuses of the war . Common mineral deposits include cassiterite, black tungsten, coltan, and gold. These minerals are produced in eastern Congo and, after multiple suppliers, enter various electronics companies. These minerals are an integral part of the equipment used in daily life, such as mobile phones, laptops and MP3 players.
"Conflict metals" refers to metals from the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo and surrounding countries. These countries include: DRC, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, Kenya. These metals include Au, Ta, W, Co, Sn. Such "conflict metals" are illegally mined or smuggled by military groups in the region, causing serious human rights, environmental and other issues. Some metal minerals have become the main source of revenue for armed insurgent groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo , Used to trade arms, continue its bloody conflict with the government, and meet local civilians, which has caused international controversy. These types of metal minerals include niobite, cassiterite, wolframite and gold, which are refined into tantalum ( Ta), tin (Sn), tungsten (W), cobalt (Co), and gold (Au) are called conflict metals.
P-SHINE ELECTRONIC TECH LTD’ Policy:
P-SHINE ELECTRONIC TECH LTD supports the objectives of the Conflict Minerals Rule. Furthermore, we do not knowingly procure any 3TG that originates from the Covered Countries unless they are processed by smelters and refiners that are verified or in the process of becoming verified as “conflict free.”
Our due diligence processes and efforts conform to the relevant portions of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (“OECD”) internationally recognized due diligence framework for responsible supply chains of minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRAs). Consistent with the foregoing and the Conflict Minerals Rule, we ask our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to determine the location from which 3TG is being sourced and whether the smelter or refiner has been verified by an independent third party as “conflict free.”
These requests are supported by P-SHINE ELECTRONIC TECH LTD’ Supplier Code of Conduct and Terms and Conditions of Purchase, which require our suppliers upon request to conduct their own due diligence and provide written documentation as to whether products containing 3TG used in the manufacture of our products originate from outside the Covered Countries, or, if they originate from within the Covered Countries, that the mines or smelters be verified as “conflict free” by an independent third party.
If we discover that products procured by us contain 3TG from the Covered Countries that is processed by facilities that are not third party-verified or in the process of becoming verified, we will take steps to transition the product to other smelters and refiners that conform to this policy. We do not seek to embargo responsibly sourced 3TG from the Covered Countries (as doing so could be detrimental to the legitimate economies and populations of those countries). Suppliers are therefore encouraged to continue support of verified smelters in the Covered Countries and to take similar measures with their supply chains.
The information provided by P-SHINE ELECTRONIC TECH LTD’ suppliers is used to conduct our due diligence. In addition to assessing supplier reports for completeness and consistency, we compare the smelter and refiner lists provided by our suppliers with the Responsible Mineral Initiative’s list of compliant smelters and refiners to determine which facilities are third party-verified or in the process of becoming verified.
