Conflict Minerals Declaration

Conflict Minerals Declaration

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into U.S. federal law on July 21, 2010. Section 1502 of the Act defines the reporting obligations for companies that are publicly traded in the US and are governed by the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC). Section 1502 requires companies that make products for which 3TG minerals (tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold) are necessary to the functionality or production of that product to assess their supply chains and publicly report on the source of these minerals if they are sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) or adjoining country or if they are from recycled or scrap sources.

Although International Light Technology is not a publicly traded company, and therefore not directly subject to this law, we are providing this declaration to our downstream customers to help them comply with any obligations relative to this law.

This inquiry was reasonably designed and was conducted in good faith with an effort to obtain reliable representations indicating smelter or refiner facilities at which its conflict minerals were processed and that those conflict minerals did not originate in the DRC or adjoining country or come from recycled or scrap suppliers. This document declares that some of International Light Technologies products contain one or more conflict minerals and that these minerals are necessary to the functionality of the products manufactured. Based upon the RCOI conducted by ILT, this document declares that all conflict minerals used in ILT products do not originate in the DRC or an adjoining country or come from recycled or scrap supplier. This document certifies that all ILT products are declared “DRC conflict free”. ILT will also request this information from our suppliers annually to assure compliance to this declaration.
