Conflict of Minerals
On August 22, 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") published final regulations implementing the "conflict minerals" reporting obligations under section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Dodd-Frank Act requires that all publicly traded companies subject to SEC rules report annually on the presence of certain minerals, characterized as conflict minerals, including tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold, in the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, and demonstrate the proper level of due diligence in determining whether these minerals originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") or an adjoining country or from scrap or recycled sources.
Aerofit, LLC is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values and respect for human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility and has implemented due diligence measures for conflict free sourcing. We support the international effort to end conflict and violence in Central Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries.
In support to our policy, all Aerofit suppliers are expected and required to take all necessary measures to comply with the Conflict Minerals provision (Section 1502) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Aerofit will discontinue doing business with suppliers who are not supporting the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
