Conflict Minerals

Recent US legislation has mandated that US corporations report whether they or their suppliers purchase certain “Conflict Minerals”, or purchase products made with or from those minerals. Tri-Pac is involved in the procurement of cans, pumps and valves from around the world for clients who are required to be in compliance with H.R. 4173, the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, otherwise known as the Dodd-Frank Act. Specifically Section 1502 of this law imposes supply-chain reporting requirements on U.S. companies sourcing conflict minerals from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the surrounding regions (together, the DRC countries). These minerals are known as the “Conflict Minerals” and include tin (Cassiterite), tungsten (Wolframite), tantalum (Columbite-tanalite or coltan), and gold (commonly referred to as the 3T’s and gold, or 3TG).

 

Tri-Pac does not purchase or use in the manufacture of its products any conflict minerals identified in Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, therefore our products are considered DRC Conflict Free.*

 

It is the responsibility of our customers to determine that their use of our product(s) is safe, lawful, and technically suitable in their intended applications. Because of possible changes in the laws and regulations, as well as possible changes in our products, we cannot guarantee the status of our products will remain unchanged. We therefore recommend that customers continuing to use our products verify its status periodically.
