(As of currently: columbite-tantalite (coltan, nobium and tantalum), cassiterite (tin), gold and wolframite (tungsten) and their derivatives mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in the adjoining countries, defined in H.R. 4173, the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act Dodd Frank Section 1502.)
Lemvigh-Müller does not procure 3TG minerals directly from mines or smelters.
As a wholesaler, Lemvigh-Müller uses its influence and knowledge to create awareness about the 3TG requirements all the way through its supply chain. It is therefore expected and required of its suppliers to source materials from socially responsible suppliers.
At the same time, Lemvigh-Müller expects all of its suppliers to comply with the Dodd-Frank regulation (http://www.sec.gov/rules/final/2012/34-67716.pdf) and that they are able to provide all necessary declarations upon request.
Lemvigh-Müller requires all of its suppliers to provide completed conflict minerals declarations using the CMRT Conflict Minerals Reporting Template, or in another way declare that they will implement conflict minerals due diligence.
Any supplier, non-compliant to these requirements, will be reviewed by our Purchasing Organization for future business.
Lemvigh-Müller will assist its customers in implementing their conflict minerals programs.
