Prohibiting Procurement Of Conflict Minerals
As a corporate citizen of the world, Getac supports and complies with the Responsible Mineral Initiative (RMI). We do not use conflict minerals that are mined in areas experiencing armed conflict or under conditions that violate human rights, specifically the 3TGs (tin, gold, tantalum and tungsten) extracted from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and neighboring countries. Getac also adheres to the RBA Code of Conduct and adopts the RMI conflicting minerals report template (CMRT) in 3TG reporting. In order to prevent use of conflict minerals in Getac's raw materials, Getac stipulates in the Master Purchase Agreement that use of conflict minerals is prohibited and that suppliers are required to abstain from using conflict minerals from conflict areas. If any suppliers are found to have violated this rule, Getac may terminate its procurement contract and cancel any orders placed with the violating supplier. Suppliers must verify the source of minerals and issue a Declaration of Non-use of Conflict Minerals or the RBA Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP), certifications of London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), and may not object to providing necessary information.
Automatic supplier screening is performed on the E-Legal system of the company's Legal Affairs Department, which blocks off any of the company's partnering suppliers who have signed the Master Purchase Agreement from placing orders on the system if they have yet to provide documents proving their commitment to the non-use of conflict minerals. Additionally, MPT Kunshan also follows the regulations of the RBA, including conflict minerals in their annual supplier audits. Getac severs ties with suppliers who fail to meet the criteria based on the preliminary and secondary audit. None of the audited suppliers in the past three years have been involved in the use of conflict minerals.
