Statement on Conflict Minerals
Anovion does not and will not do business with a supplier using “conflict minerals” as that term is defined in Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and related regulations. Accordingly, as a supplier to Anovion you must:
- Certify annually to Anovion that (i) you do not and will not knowingly purchase materials from your suppliers that contain conflict minerals; (ii) you do not and will not knowingly use conflict minerals in products you supply to Anovion; and (iii) all products you supply to Anovion are free of conflict minerals.
- Have policies and systems in place that provide for the traceability and transparency of your supply chain that allow for a determination of the country of origin of potential conflict minerals—and require your suppliers to do the same.
- Work with your upstream suppliers and supply chain to determine if any products containing conflict minerals are supplied to Anovion and work with those suppliers to eliminate the use of conflict materials.
- Promptly notify Anovion if conflict minerals are contained in any of the products you supply to Anovion.
- Actively support Anovion in its efforts to follow the spirit of Section 1502, which includes cooperating with Anovion’s ongoing monitoring of the component materials of your products and responding to Anovion’s requests for information about the material composition of the products you are supplying to it.
