Conflict Minerals Policy
Key Safety Systems is committed to manufacturing products whose sourced components are in compliance with all applicable laws. To that end, Key Safety Systems’ suppliers are expected to comply with all applicable local, country, and international laws regarding material content for the materials supplied to Key Safety Systems. At Key Safety Systems’ request, suppliers must provide to Key Safety Systems reports on the occurrence of substances in any materials supplied to Key Safety Systems that may be restricted by, or require disclosure to, governmental bodies, customers and/or recyclers. Regarding conflict minerals specifically, suppliers are expected to supply materials to Key Safety Systems that are DRC conflict-free.
DRC conflict-free means any conflict minerals (gold, columbite-tantalite, also known as coltan, cassiterite, wolframite, or their derivatives tin, tantalum or tungsten (collectively the “3TGs”)) necessary to the functionality or production of supplied materials, whether original-source, recycled, or scrap, that do not directly or indirectly finance armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country. Suppliers are expected to adopt policies and management systems with respect to conflict minerals and to require their suppliers to adopt similar policies and systems. For additional information please see the AIAG Conflict Minerals site at http://conflictminerals.aiag.org
It is the policy of Key Safety Systems to develop a supply base as culturally diverse as the communities it serves and the societies in which it conducts business. All qualified minority companies shall have equal opportunity to compete for business awards from Key Safety Systems.
